Board Toolkit

Board Toolkit

​Chapter Zero, the Berkeley Partnership and the Hughes Hall Centre for Climate Change Engagement have come together to create a climate change Board Toolkit. It is designed to help non-executive directors understand the key issues relating to climate change and ensure that their businesses have the right strategic plans in place to identify and successfully address climate change challenges. This is a highly practical, ever-evolving Board Toolkit, and we are continually applying feedback from NEDs who are using this tool in their boardrooms, to develop the content to ensure it is as relevant, accessible and easy-to-use as possible.

The Board Toolkit will help boards to structure their discussions and actions on climate-related issues, it also contains drill downs and links to other relevant resources which will help to inform board responses.

We hope you will find this Board Toolkit useful, and we welcome any feedback you may have. Contact us: climate@hughes.cam.ac.uk

 

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.
