How to Apply for a Presidency Endorsement

The COP23 Presidency is only able to process applications that are submitted in English. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes, but due to limited resources, we are not able to translate or process applications submitted in other languages. 


Official Partners

If you are interested in providing support to the COP23 Presidency, please send an email to info@cop23.com.fj.

Businesses can contribute to the organisation of COP23 through either financial or in-kind contributions (through its products, know-how or expertise).

As part of the selection process, a company must provide a presentation of its activities in favour of climate action; in some cases a corporate social responsibility report may be requested as well. Applications will go through a selection committee that will study each case.


Endorsed Event

To apply to have your event labeled as an “Endorsed Event” and to receive the endorsed event label, please send a completed application form – together with all relevant supporting documentation – an email to logo@cop23.com.fj.

Event organisers should provide as much detail as possible to allow the selection committee to assess the application against certain eligibility criteria. The event must have a direct link to one of the themes outlined in Fiji’s vision for the COP23 Presidency. The event should also lead to direct and concrete outcomes that further the global fight against climate change.

The selection committee will endeavour to respond to requests within 10 working days, but during times of high traffic, this period may be longer.

Once the event has been approved, the organisers must sign the charter of use before they can obtain the label. This includes an agreement to respect the principles of environmental sustainability.

Once the charter has been signed, the organisers will receive a high-quality vector image.

The label applies only to the event for which the charter was signed. The supporting organisation will not be labelled as an official partner, nor will other events it organises be labelled as endorsed by the COP23 Presidency without separate application.


Endorsed Initiative

To apply to have your project or initiative labeled as an “Endorsed Initiative” and to receive the endorsed initiative label,please send a completed application form – together with all relevant supporting documentation – an email to logo@cop23.com.fj.

Please provide as much information as possible to allow the selection committee to properly review your request. The selection committee will be looking for innovative and proven initiatives that are aligned with Fiji’s vision for the COP23 Presidency.

The selection committee will endeavour to respond to requests within 20 working days, but during times of high traffic, this period may be longer.

Once the initiative has been approved, the applicant must sign the charter of use before obtaining the label. This includes an agreement to respect the principles of environmental sustainability.

Once the charter has been signed, the organisers will receive a high-quality vector image.

The label applies only to the initiative for which the charter was signed. The supporting organisation will not be labelled as an official partner, nor will any other of its initiatives or projects be labelled or endorsed by the COP23 Presidency without separate application.
