Our Chapters

The Climate Governance Initiative has Chapters in over 70 countries worldwide. A Chapter is a group of board directors in a particular country or region who have formed a network dedicated to enabling and empowering chairs, non-executive and independent directors to take climate action. From the Asia Pacific to the Americas, our rapidly growing network is focused on driving impact in boardrooms across the globe.
