Egypt hosted the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) in November 2022 which concluded with a historic decision to establish and operationalise a loss and damage fund. Building on this momentum, and in line with the Egypt Vision 2030, the Federation of Egyptian Industries and the United Nations Global Compact hosted the 3rd Annual Sustainability Conference in Luxor, Egypt. The purpose of this conference was to harness business partnerships towards more efficient and sustainable solutions.
