"The sense of urgency to act on climate change is growing in the boardroom. But what are business opportunities next to the risks? How can you help the boardroom identify and act on opportunities and risks? Chapter Zero NL empowers you to lead the boardroom discussion, helping transform ambitions to plans and action."
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. Currently the network is active in over 50 countries with 2500 members. At least 230 companies in the FTSE350 have at least one Chapter Zero member on their board.
Building on the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Effective Climate Governance, our ambition is to empower and support supervisory board members in the Netherlands on the opportunities and risks of climate change and other planetary challenges and its consequences on corporate businesses. Our goal is to build a large community of Supervisory Board Members who stimulate and inspire each other to take the desired actions in their own organisations.
On 29th of March 2023 the Netherlands Chapter is launched with an event at the Koninklijke Institute of the Tropen. The founding Partners are Deloitte, Baker McKenzie, and the University of Groningen.
