COP28: Enabling sustainable growth

LSEG is dedicated to tackling the world’s urgent challenges and enabling sustainable growth for economies globally. That’s why we are focused on the permanent fusion of sustainability and finance.

COP28 UAE was a milestone moment when the world took stock of progress on the Paris Agreement and came together to align on bold, practical, and ambitious actions and solutions to the most pressing global challenge of our time.

As COP players assessed the world’s collective progress towards climate goals, LSEG’s COP28 delegation, including our CEO, David Schwimmer, built on engagements and partnerships across the financial industry to accelerate the transition to net-zero, grow the green economy and achieve inclusive economic growth globally.

Climate engagements

This year we participated in and hosted a number of prominent climate events and engagements in an effort to support and drive forward the COP agenda.

Highlights from LSEG’s participation during COP include: contributing to the groundbreaking Net-Zero Data Public Utility (NZDPU) project launch and joining GFANZ engagements to discuss how the financial sector can help to accelerate the transition​ and the importance of companies publishing climate transition plans.
