COP28 Dubai: Pressure mounts for meaningful climate action after COP27’s ‘disappointing’ outcome

29 November 2023 2 minute read

With only a few days to go until COP28 convenes in Dubai, pressures mount on leaders to turn intentions into impact after ‘disappointing’ COP27 outcome.

As world leaders gear up to converge in Dubai this week for COP28, expectations are high that this year’s climate conference will move beyond dialogue to deliver concrete plans and commitments to tackle the climate crisis.

Our CTO Luca Corradi share his opinions with Arabian Business ahead of COP28.

“COP28 is a platform to advance an integrated energy vision, to break down barriers so that net zero technology can be scaled rapidly, and to help each country participating to recognise the diverse paths they must take in their net zero transition, according to Luca Corradi, CTO of non-profit organisation Net Zero Technology Centre. He emphasised the need to “accelerate the pace of co-development towards a net zero carbon economy.”

“Many of the energy transition technologies needed to limit the global temperature rise already exist. But it is well documented that more effort is required to rapidly scale up, reduce costs and increase efficiencies as well as accelerate the pace of co-development towards a net zero carbon economy,” he said, adding that even established technologies “are not scaling up and diffusing fast enough to shift towards a net zero-emissions trajectory.”
