The logo, which was unveiled by COP28 President-Designate Dr. Sultan al-Jaber, is based on the concept of “One World” and features a spherical design in light and dark green.
The design includes a collection of diverse icons, including people, renewable energy technologies, wildlife and nature, all encapsulated in one globe.
The imagery represents the wealth of humanity’s natural and technological resources, and emphasizes the need for innovation across all sectors to drive inclusive and transformational sustainable development.
“We live in one world, a world where we need to collaborate and cooperate like never before to make the transformational progress needed to reach the Paris Agreement. COP28 will be a COP for Action and a COP for all, bringing together the global north and south and leaving no one behind,” al-Jaber said,
The COP28 logo will be applied across all COP28 branding, including the newly launched website and on-site at Expo City Dubai. The conference will also feature a dynamic animation of the logo that brings the logo and its story to life on digital media.
COP28 UAE Presidency has also announced the appointment of a diverse leadership team that will work closely with the UNFCCC and the COP27 Presidency to champion an inclusive and comprehensive agenda for the global climate summit.

The climate conference is expected to attract world leaders, policymakers, and experts from various sectors to discuss and create actionable solutions to address the pressing issue of climate change, and to find global consensus to move forward and achieve the goal set by the Paris Agreement.
