Chapter Zero has launched a new Board Scorecard to help boards assess how effectively they are tackling the net zero transition and building resilience to climate impacts.
Non-executive directors (like Caspia’s own Pam Vick, who is a non-exec and also a Trustee) help shape the strategy of a business including addressing the risks and opportunities climate change presents. Chapter Zero helps them to do this. Their purpose is to build a community of non-executive directors and equip them to lead crucial UK boardroom discussions on the impacts of climate change. 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.
Why use the Board Scorecard?
- It will indicate how well you think your board is responding to the challenge of climate change
- It will help you make informed decisions on priorities for action, and ask the right questions in the boardroom
- You can use the Board Scorecard results to capture impressions from board members and others in the organisation, to enable a good discussion
- It can help identify gaps to be addressed, differences of view and barriers to be overcome.
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. They will not identify your company if they use the results for data analysis purposes.
The Board Scorecard is not intended to be rigorous. It is designed to capture and encourage debate in the boardroom.
