A growing network

Chapter Zero partners with experts to deliver topical events and develop credible information for NEDs.




We are the UK Chapter of the Climate Governance Initiative – developed in collaboration with the World Economic Forum. There are now 25 Chapters in over 70 countries.


We were developed with the support of the Hughes Hall Centre for Climate Engagement, and are a not-for-profit business wholly owned by Hughes Hall.



We are grateful for the help and support of the following organisations:

Search Firms Declaration

In January 2022, we joined with leading board search and advisory firms to help ensure that companies recruit climate-competent NEDs. These firms have committed to raise the issues of sustainability and climate with every client and candidate, and to assess every prospective Chair and NED for their competence on climate change issues.
