The ‘Business & Philanthropy Climate Forum’ at COP28 witnessed a historic collaboration, as Green Climate Fund, Allied Climate Partners, and Allianz Global Investors pledged 5 billion dollars to advance climate and nature action. The forum, a first-of-its-kind private-sector engagement initiative within the COP program, brought together over 1,300 global business leaders and philanthropists, amplifying the private sector’s call for inclusion in the COP process.

COP28 President, Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, emphasized the importance of leveraging private sector knowledge and resources to address climate finance challenges. He stated that, to fix climate finance, the forum must leverage the knowledge, resources, and power of the private sector to ensure that necessary funding to those in need may be delivered, particularly in the global south.
