The 28th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP28) took place on November 30 - December 12 in Dubai.

As the final day of COP28 came and went, there was concern that an agreement would not be reached. But after intense negotiations on December 13, the historic agreement was announced on fossil fuels that occupied the headlines. But some have criticised that it doesn't go far enough.

During almost two weeks of negotiations, politics and the private sector shared the stage, shining a spotlight on the important role businesses have to play in the climate crisis.
