COP28 has appointed Kuehne+Nagel as the official logistics partner at the global 2023 UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai.

"From November 30 until December 12, the event is expected to convene over 70,000 accredited visitors to the restricted blue zone and 50,000 daily visitors to the public green zone. The appointment underpins Kuehne+Nagel’s capabilities in expo and events logistics, as well as its commitment to its science-based emission reduction targets and efforts to decarbonise logistics," says a release from Kuehne+Nagel.

At Expo City Dubai, Kuehne+Nagel will be the sole ground handler responsible for steering all logistics activities on-site like building country pavilions and stages for panel discussions, the release added. "In addition, the team will support participants in their end-to-end and local logistics needs, from international freight forwarding, customs clearance and warehousing, to venue delivery-all supported by Kuehne+Nagel's global network of experts and its portfolio of low-emission solutions."

Damian Raczynski, National Manager, UAE and Oman, Kuehne+Nagel says: "We are proud to have been appointed for this important conference. Kuehne+Nagel is well-known in the events and exhibition space in Europe, and this appointment underpins our efforts to further develop this segment in the Middle East-an area with great infrastructure to accommodate this industry."

Kuehne+Nagel has committed to the Science-Based Target initiative (SBTi), and has taken steps to make low-emission transport solutions available for its customers.

Sarah Kreienbühl, Member of the Management Board responsible for Human Resources and ESG, Kuehne+Nagel says: "Our current focus is on making low-emission fuels more widely available in the market. However, our industry needs to unlock new technologies to have more and better solutions. This is a challenge for which all actors across societies and industries need to work together. That is why the yearly conference of the parties is so important, alongside other forums and coalitions that bring actors together to address climate change."
