Luxembourg’s Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Biodiversity has announced that on Friday 1 to Saturday 2 December 2023, the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, accompanied by the Minister of the Environment, Climate and Biodiversity, Serge Wilmes, will travel to Dubai to represent Luxembourg at the World Climate Action Summit.

This summit takes place at the invitation of the host country, the United Arab Emirates, on the sidelines of COP28 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is considered the largest global conference on climate action.

In addition to participating in the high-level climate summit, Luxembourg’s Grand Duke and Minister Wilmes will take advantage of the opportunity to meet civil society actors, and to visit the pavilions of Luxembourg's main partners in the field of climate action.

Minister Serge Wilmes will also participate in the launch session of the Climate Club, of which Luxembourg is one of the first supporters. The Climate Club, initiated by the G7 in December 2022, chaired by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Chilean President Gabriel Boric, aims to accelerate the decarbonisation of global industry in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement, starting with steel and cement.
