Mobilising boards to address climate change
The Climate Governance Initiative mobilises boards of directors around the world to address climate change in their businesses. We do this by developing and supporting national associations that equip their members with the skills and knowledge needed to make climate a boardroom priority building on the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Effective Climate Governance.

Climate change is a global emergency. Our response to the challenge will impact the stability of financial markets and economies and requires collaboration between the public, private and financial sectors. Business has a crucial role to play in the transition to a net-zero economy. However, an uneven level of knowledge about the topic at board level weakens their ability to adequately address it. Equipping board members with tools to effectively address corporate governance-related climate issues is essential to ensure an equitable and effective transition that achieves the goals of the Paris Accord.
Our mission is to support a global network of Chapters to mobilize chairs, non-executive and independent directors through enhancing their skills in climate governance and climate action.
