Key Takeaways from COP28

COP28 delivered 10 meaningful pledges, including three on the energy transition and the first-ever pledge on food systems transformation.

COP28 also saw the highest-ever attendance by global CEOs, underscoring the role of business in driving climate outcomes.

This report contains our key takeaways from COP28 and the implications for corporations around the world.
