The Road to COP28 - Edition 4

This month marked the 100-day countdown to COP28. We look forward to welcoming UNFCCC accredited delegates to the UK Pavilion in the COP28 Blue Zone, where you can learn about the United Kingdom’s pioneering efforts to combat climate change. We will also be live-streaming all of our events for those who cannot physically be present.


This month saw the announcement that the UK will host a landmark global energy security conference in London, in Spring 2024. The conference will focus on building energy resilience nationally and internationally, speeding up the deployment of clean and resilient energy infrastructure, advancing technologies and innovation to promote greater energy independence and cooperating internationally to boost energy security around the world.
