ICC Germany PreCOP Forum : Half the time is up: How can the green transition still be achieved?

10-11 Oct 2023

Berlin and Online English
Start: 15:00 || End: 17:00

The stocktaking exercise at this year’s COP 28 is of unprecedented significance, making it one of the most important international climate conferences ever. Also from a private sector perspective, the conference must go beyond mere negotiations and create a lasting legacy for action. ICC Germany is therefore delighted to present their 7th PreCOP Forum 

 “Half the time is up: How can the green transition still be achieved?” 

on 10-11 October 2023 in Berlin and online 


At the Forum, we will be joined by experts from the private and public sector to discuss what the global business community can and must do to make COP28 a success and to ensure that the goals of the Paris Agreement are indeed met by 2030. We will engage with policymakers, German and international business leaders and other experts on issues like climate action until 2030, collaboration between global business and governments, climate and biodiversity, hydrogen and the energy transition, sustainable finance, human rights, good corporate governance and just transition. Companies will share best practices that have led to significant progress in environmental, social and governance issues, discuss challenges and explore how new technologies and solutions can contribute. Finally, we want to provide an opportunity for interactive exchange and networking and look forward to an insightful event!
