As the climate crisis worsens, pressure is intensifying on businesses to ramp up their efforts to decarbonise their operations.

On the other hand, calls to reach a global fossil fuels phaseout agreement at the upcoming COP28 meeting in November in Dubai are opposed by the fossil fuels industry, which is doubling down on investments in oil and gas, participants were told. Meanwhile, though the renewable energy sector carries on growing, it continues to face challenges, including high CAPEX costs and supply chain and grid issues.
