And that wraps up Denominator’s third COP conference! Gathered from four different corners, a bigger team than before, 5 members of team Denominator arrived at COP28!

Our first official day at COP28 was spent in the company of The Wall Street Journal, at their event at the Journal House. During this gathering, Kristian Wredstroem engaged in a round table lunch alongside Chief Sustainability Officers representing diverse countries and industries.

In addition to this, Denominator’s CEO, Anders Rodenberg, was invited to a dinner hosted by Mastercard’s Chief Sustainability Officers, Ellen Jackowski, at Goals House as well as a round table organized by EY.  

Furthermore, our team also joined venues and events such as the Green Zone, World Climate Summit, the Innovation Zone, Bloomberg Green, Accenture, as well as receptions hosted by the Danish Embassy in UAE and more. 


Since COP26 in Glasgow, Denominator and The Female Quotient have been measuring and following the progress of performance within Gender Equality and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion within sustainability. This year was no different, with a full day of panels at the Equality Lounge focused on DEI. However, this year Denominator delivered DEI insights to kick off each one of the sessions. You can find all insights here and watch the livestreams of selected sessions on Denominator’s YouTube channel here. 

Highlighting global DEI insights through quantifiable data at the many events and panels, was not the only time that Denominator got to share key DEI insights with great implications.
