Climate change affects every sector and all businesses. The risk to asset values is now well established and boards are increasingly recognising the need to assess the financial risk resulting from the physical impacts of climate change and to develop strategies for both adaptation to protect their business models, and mitigation to help keep the rise in global temperatures to 1.5°C.
Whether a board chair wanting to shape the board agenda on climate change, an audit chair leading the governance of climate change risk and reporting, or as a non-executive director wishing to participate fully in board debates on this complex topic, complete the membership form below, and join us.

“Carbon emissions have to decline by 45% from 2010 levels over the next decade in order to reach net zero carbon by 2050. This requires a massive reallocation of capital. If some companies and industries fail to adjust to this new world, they will cease to exist.”
Delivering a net zero economy by 2050 will require urgent action from businesses across all sectors. Companies must respond to growing demand from investors and customers by making climate change a Boardroom priority. Firms that act now will not only play their part in avoiding the devastating impact of climate change but also steal a march on their competitors.
