How it works

To complete the Board Scorecard you need to answer a total of 20 questions. These are split across four different topic areas: leadership, ownership, strategy and measurement. The questions are designed to help you assess how effectively your board is tackling the net zero transition and building resilience to climate impacts.

Upon completion you will be emailed a PDF of your results that you can take to the boardroom to facilitate discussion. The information you give, including your email address and scoring, will be stored securely. We will not identify your company if we use the results for data analysis purposes.

Here is an example of the PDF output:

The Board Scorecard is not intended to be rigorous. It is designed to capture and encourage debate in the boardroom.
