Join Roland Berger at COP28 in Dubai – and turn your climate ambition into action

At Roland Berger, we are clear-eyed about the climate challenge. We already know that the first global stocktake since the Paris Agreement to evaluate progress on climate change will tell us that we are "off track" to meet the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Indeed, according to the Sixth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we are currently heading for global warming of well over two degrees. Clearly, we must stop talking about reducing emissions and start actually doing something. It's time to turn our climate ambition into climate action.

We’re for making an impact

This year, the 28th session of the UN climate change conference, COP28, will be held at the Expo City Dubai from November 30 to December 12. We believe that this COP must be more than a talking shop: It must be a COP of action. And we’re ready to make an impact.

With our implementation power, we will accelerate change to unlock climate action and ensure future-proof business models. That’s why we’re for more than just green. We’re for blue, yellow, and every color in nature where our actionable ideas enable us to cross barriers and unleash crucial progress. Nature and her vibrant colors inspire us to not only drive sustainability commitments, but to build a future where synergy between business growth and sustainability becomes an inseparable foundation for success.

We’re for accelerating change

One way that Roland Berger helps stakeholders accelerate change is by directly supporting them in their climate efforts. At Roland Berger, we are implementers at heart. Our biggest impact lies in helping clients become more sustainable – from reducing their carbon footprint to enhancing their use of resources. We also advise the public sector on the best frameworks for facilitating transformation in different industries.

At COP28, we will bring our implementation power to the table by setting up a Roland Berger ACTion Zone – a combined physical and virtual platform where we will facilitate in-depth discussions on different topics, from hydrogen and CCUS to supply chain and resource management. The ACTion Zone will be open to everyone: Interested stakeholders can attend workshops, connect with our various experts or access recordings of the sessions later on our website.

We’re for pioneering new solutions

Our goal is to turbocharge the transition to a sustainable, circular economy. Through joint projects and research, Roland Berger consultants work with a broad set of stakeholders from governments, academia and civil society to develop innovative approaches to current challenges.

We are always on the lookout for opportunities to pioneer new solutions. For example, at COP28 we will be launching a ground-breaking global standard for waste recycling, developed together with BEEAH Group, the leading sustainability and digitalization expert in the Middle East, and the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA). Based on blockchain technology, this global market-based incentive scheme will bring together waste producers and waste management providers, awarding producers "recycling credits" to help them meet their sustainability targets. Another recent project that we were involved in is the global thinktank Green Block, launched together with Crypto Oasis Ventures, a leading venture builder. Green Block aims to accelerate and promote the use of Web3, blockchain and AI technology for ESG projects. In addition to these projetcs, there are other initiatives that will be launched soon.

We’re for leading by example

In order to secure sustainable growth, the world must master a range of business, environmental and social challenges. At Roland Berger, we believe that we should run our business accordingly, leading by example. For more on our commitment to sustainability, click here .
