We’re building a community of non-executive directors who understand the risks and opportunities of climate change for their businesses. Become a member.

It’s free to join Chapter Zero and our events and content are designed so our members can engage with the topics and areas that are relevant to them. Whether you are new to the business impacts of climate change or an expert on the topic, our membership has benefits for everyone:


Learning opportunities

We work with a range of organisations to offer events and workshops for non-executive directors on how to address climate change in their boardrooms.

Access to expertise

Between our company partners, collaborators and team we have access to relevant information from regulators, standard-setters and more.


We provide a platform for non-executive directors to share business experiences of climate change and corporate governance, and to connect with peers.

Tailored knowledge

We curate and share topical resources with our members. Our toolkits, events and resources are all tailored for non-executive directors and their board roles.

What does being a member involve?

As a member of Chapter Zero you are free to attend events, our peer groups (called Climate Dialogues), and access our online content as much as you like. We’ll keep you up to date with a monthly member bulletin and share news, events and content regularly.

For those who would like to be more involved and share their experience of climate change in the boardroom with other non-executive directors (NEDs), we’re developing a new programme in late 2021 to help you do this.

We value your feedback and views. Chapter Zero was created by NEDs to benefit NEDs and your feedback helps us ensure we are still providing a valuable service to the membership. Occasionally we’ll invite you to fill in a survey or take part in a phone discussion so we can understand how we can improve.

Are you interested in becoming a member but aren’t a non-executive director?

Chapter Zero is for NEDs, but we are aware that aspiring NEDs or professionals who work with board members may be interested in membership. If you are not a NED but feel you would still be a relevant member of Chapter Zero, you can apply using the link above to be an Associate Member and receive selected parts of our communications and attend some of our events.


If you have any questions call membership support on 07708 513190.
