Where do we start? Climate governance workshop for directors

A practical session working through the Chapter Zero NZ Board Toolkit with Judene Edgar.

The Chapter Zero NZ Board Toolkit centres on a simple five-step approach designed to enable boards and directors to take timely, positive and decisive climate action within their organisations.

In this session, you will receive a comprehensive overview of the Board Toolkit, and have the opportunity to hear from a local director, about their ongoing climate change journey, including valuable insights and lessons learned so far.

You will leave equipped with a practical action plan to help your board get started. We encourage you to bring other members of your board along to get the discussion going before you even leave the room.

Institute of Directors welcome members of their partners, Southland Business Chamber and Great South to register for the IoD member price by using the promo-code BECH45CG24.
