Make the commitment

Play your part and drive climate action in MENA

The Middle East and North Africa are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Climate action, including commitments to reduce emissions, adopting responsible practices, and fully embedding sustainability within businesses, must be accelerated – and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can take a leading role. SMEs account for 60% of GDP in the MENA region and are therefore critical actors in driving climate action and helping to build regional resilience.

COP28 & SME Climate Hub for MENA is a collaboration between the COP28 UAE Presidency and the SME Climate Hub. Every business, no matter how big or small, has a responsibility to address climate change. Discover how your company can help pave the way for a net zero future, while gaining market share, protecting your bottom line, and building long-term resilience.
