Welcome to the COP28 Insights Hub

COP28 is now over- what are your next steps?

From Thursday 30th November – Tuesday 12th December 2023, Dubai in United Arab Emirates hosted COP28 – the United Nations’ 28th annual global climate change conference.

Decisions made by world leaders during COP impact not only how we as energy and sustainability leaders manage our business operations, but more importantly how society adapts to a changing environment.  

As with any highly publicised global event, the Climate COPs attract a lot of coverage with conflicting views and biases. This means it can be hard to know what changes from the conference will impact businesses and non-profit organisations here in the UK.

Inspired is here to help.

We have shared the most impactful insights of this year’s conference for you to review, reference and digest at your convenience. Here are the main themes discussed:
