Acumen Media have launched a series of leadership interviews and networking events – that will take place during the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai this December.

The powerful interview series will feature intimate one-on-one conversations between global business leaders and seasoned journalists, exploring their perspectives on the urgent need for climate solutions and the role of business in driving change. "We wanted to provide a platform for influential business leaders to share their visions and strategies around climate change," said a spokesperson for Acumen Media.

"These interviews and networking events will catalyse important conversations and connections to empower impactful climate action across private and public sectors." The leadership interviews will take place in the Dubai Expo City Greenzone from December 3-10.

Prominent business executives across industries like energy, technology, manufacturing and finance will sit down with seasoned journalists to discuss lessons learned, sustainability success stories and their outlooks for the future. In addition, Acumen Media will host evening networking events on December 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th at the Holiday Inn Al Maktoum in Dubai.
