On Wednesday, 29 April 2020, Julie Baddeley, Chair of the Chapter Zero Steering Committee, published an open letter in the Financial Times to highlight the role of boards in in tackling climate change and building back better after the pandemic.
The text reads:
Build back better
The last few months have demonstrated that finding solutions to global challenges requires collaboration in fundamentally new ways. At Chapter Zero, we’re focused on just that.
We are a network of more than 750 UK chairs and non-executive directors working to put climate change firmly on the boardroom agenda. Our members span many of the UK’s largest listed companies, with Chapter Zero providing the practical tools and support to make these
conversations a reality.
It may appear that the current falls in emissions have bought a little time, but experts tell us that this will be short lived if we do not come out of this crisis with clear strategies to tackle the longer-term climate threat. If you would like to join this growing group of directors who are working to ensure we emerge better equipped and ready to deal with the climate change challenge, please get in touch.
Let’s build back better together.
