Climate Governance

Climate change challenges non-executive board members. They must navigate external climate factors, evolving stakeholder expectations, and changing regulations while strengthening and overseeing long-term strategies. To effectively fulfill this role, board members need knowledge, insights, tools, and a vision. They need knowledge of climate change's business impact and sustainability transition. Insights into how external factors affect organizations and the role of boards. Tools and strategies to intervene effectively in organizational practices. And a personal vision for action!

That is why we are proud to announce the cooperation with Chapter Zero The Netherlands. Chapter Zero Netherlands is the Dutch Chapter of the Climate Governance Initiative (CGI), an initiative in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, mobilizing boards of directors around the world to urgently address the topic of climate change in their businesses. In cooperation with Chapter Zero Netherlands we have created a 5-day programme Effective Climate Governance for Non-Executive Board Members. The programme starts on 26 & 27 October 2023!
