Directors' guide to climate governance
Supporting non-executive directors to better understand their role in effectively managing and mitigating climate risks
Climate risk is the defining business leadership challenge of our time and the role of Boards will prove crucial as organisations navigate a path to a climate-resilient future. To support non-executive directors better understand their role in supporting their organisations to effectively manage and mitigate climate risk, Deloitte, in collaboration with Toitū Tahua: Centre for Sustainable Finance, and the Sustainable Business Council, brought together directors from a range of industries and sectors to participate in a series of five climate governance workshops.
Structured around the World Economic Forum’s principles of climate governance, the workshops and this guide have been designed to equip directors with the right questions to take back to their boards and executive management teams to guide robust conversations around climate risk management.
This guide is intended to provide directors with a quick reference to climate governance principals, and to equip them with the valuable views, insights, and guidance provided during the workshops.
We hope you find this guide to be of practical use.
