Our purpose is to build a community of non-executive directors and equip them to lead crucial boardroom discussions on the impacts of climate change. Our members are helping ensure their companies are fit for the future and that global net zero ambitions are transformed into robust plans and measurable action.

To help them do this, our programmes are designed so our members can engage with the topics and areas that are relevant to them. This includes events, workshops, toolkits and other content designed for those who are just starting to engage with climate change in their boardroom, as well as more in-depth activities for those who are more experienced.

Through these programmes we offer learning opportunities, access to expertise, tailored knowledge and connections with peers.

Chapter Zero Ireland is the Irish Chapter of the Climate Governance Initiative  (CGI)– developed in collaboration with the World Economic Forum – and has shared its experience with new and emerging directors’ climate forums around the world. Together, the CGI Chapters are supporting NEDs around the world to help address climate considerations in the boardroom. Each Chapter has signed up to the CGI Charter. The full list of Chapters can be found here.


We’re building a community of non-executive directors who understand the risks and opportunities of climate change for their businesses.

It’s free to join Chapter Zero Ireland and our events and content are designed so our members can engage with the topics and areas that are relevant to them. Whether you are new to the business impacts of climate change or an expert on the topic.
