Overcoming Barriers to Effective Climate Governance
The findings reported here are based on a survey that we conducted to uncover the barriers to act on Climate Change within the Board of Directors. This project was made possible through the generous support of the King Baudouin Foundation, through their call for projects “Tous chaud pour le climat / Iedereen warm voor het klimaat”. We would also like to thank Profacts for their invaluable support in designing, building and analysing the survey.
In our report, which can be downloaded here we outline the barriers & drivers for effective climate governance and outline key recommendations and actions to move forward.
Climate risk is perceived as material to nearly all board members surveyed
Over half of boards are not taking any action at all on climate risks & opportunities
Only a fraction are discussing the topic regularly (quarterly)
What are the barriers
inhibiting action on Climate in the boardroom?
What are the drivers
enforcing action on Climate in the boardroom?
