Where Ambition Meets Action

The Leading Forum for Public-Private Partnerships Alongside COP

World Climate Summit - The Investment COP 2023, hosted by the World Climate Foundation, returns on 7-8 December alongside COP28 in Dubai, marking its 14th year.

As the largest C-level B2B convening alongside COP, World Climate Summit facilitates the exchange of best practices and innovations across vital sectors crucial to decarbonisation efforts in the areas of energy, transport, buildings, industry, finance and nature. 

The event is closely linked to this year’s Global Stocktake, emphasising how non-government stakeholders can achieve transition pathways to deliver on climate action. Furthermore, the Summit serves as a platform for front-running pledges, commitments and action plans aligned with the objectives of the Paris Agreement. 


Proudly associated with the Marrakech Partnership for non-government stakeholders and accredited observer of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the World Climate Foundation actively contributes to the Paris Agreement's implementation.

World Climate Summit – The Investment COP is closely intertwined with the Foundation's impactful initiatives, such as the Climate Investment Coalition, World Biodiversity Network, and World Health Network. The Summit aims to deliver key outcomes aligned with the Foundation's impact framework for COP28, actively supporting the priorities of the UAE COP Presidency to guide the world towards a 1.5°C pathway.
