Chapter Zero Climate change briefings for board members

ICAEW is a supporter of Chapter Zero, which together with Deloitte, is running a series of briefing sessions for board members on climate change.

Chapter Zero is the UK chapter of the WEF Climate Governance Principles initiative.

Chapter Zero will be running a series of events in the autumn, in collaboration with Deloitte. These will be 90-minute morning briefings in central London with business leaders and subject matter experts, covering:

• bringing climate change on to the board agenda 

• understanding the risks and opportunities, scenario analysis and strategy

• choosing metrics and targets

• financial statement impact and narrative reporting in the annual report.

The first will be on 13 September 2019 at 8.30 am with Simon Thompson, Chair of 3i plc and Rio Tinto plc as the keynote speaker, who will be joined by panel members. The second is on 14 October 2019 when Stephen Billingham, chair of SSE, and Danier Klier from HSBC will speak. Further dates and speakers are being finalised.

To register for the first briefing on 13 September 2019 or the second briefing on 14 October 2019, contact climate@hughes.cam.ac.uk.
