Crown has announced it is participating in two key sessions on site at COP28, the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which takes place in Dubai, UAE, from 30 November to 12 December. As the world’s largest and most prominent annual meeting of the minds on climate-related issues, COP28 serves as a critical forum for various industries to take stock of progress around the Paris Agreement.

Amid the ongoing race to slow the pace of climate change, Crown continues to take a proactive role in industry sustainability initiatives. Long-term decarbonisation remains at the forefront of those efforts, it says, with Climate Action and Optimum Circularity as two core pillars of focus within the company’s ongoing Twentyby30 programme.

Sandrine Duquerroy-Delesalle, director of sustainability & external affairs at Crown, will speak at COP28 along with other thought leaders on various aluminium-centric topics. Details of the sessions include:
