Mckingtorch Africa got selected to showcase works from repurposed and recycled plastic waste at the embassy of the UAE. Delegates from nearly 200 countries gathered in Dubai from November 30 to December 12 for the COP28 climate conference which resulted in nearly every country in the world agreeing to transition away from fossil fuels. “This agreement represents a milestone for global climate progress,” said MSCI Chairman and CEO Henry Fernandez. “Turning it into real-world decarbonization will require support from all industries, including finance and investment. MSCI is committed to providing the data, models, research, and other tools that promote greater clarity for investors. A better understanding of climate-related risks and opportunities can drive the action needed to achieve net-zero emissions.”
