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.

Free to join, Chapter Zero gives members the opportunity to shape the new network to ensure it contributes fully to helping companies protect their asset values, adapt to the results of climate change, mitigate their impacts and deal with the transition over the next few years.

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, and Join Us.


Climate Change is not only one of the biggest challenges facing UK businesses today, it is also a huge opportunity. Meeting the challenge and making the most of this opportunity depends on corporate boards being well briefed and committed to focussed action.
