Our Financial Times #netzero series
Every board has a vital role to play in making sure that their business has a plan for the pathway towards the Government’s net zero target. We’re running a series of full page adverts in the Financial Times to put the spotlight on the power that boards can have to get UK business as close to net zero emissions as possible.
The advert spaces have been donated by the Financial Times as part of a New Agenda Partnership, following the launch of their Climate Capital Hub.
The main message is:
To tackle climate change every business needs a net zero plan. Boards have a vital role to play in making that happen. At Chapter Zero we enable our community of non-executive directors to take this essential climate discussion into the boardroom.Join us
Throughout 2021 we’re working with some of the UK’s most recognisable businesses across a range of sectors. Using this series of adverts we’ll highlight the breadth of companies who have a net zero plan and showcase their commitment to achieving them.
At Chapter Zero we’re committed to helping our non-executive director members discuss the risks and opportunities of climate change in the boardroom and further net zero plans with their businesses. If you want to become a member you can sign up here.
