Climate change is shaping a new reality, creating risks and opportunities for businesses in a diverse number of ways. Investors, regulators and other stakeholders are now challenging companies to take responsibility by adopting an integrated, strategic approach to addressing the climate emergency. However, an uneven level of knowledge about the topic at board level weakens their ability to adequately address it.

Enabling board members with tools to effectively address corporate governance-related climate issues is essential to ensure an equitable and effective transition that achieves the goals of a low carbon economy.

The Climate Governance Initiative is a project in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, in partnership with the Hughes Hall Centre for Climate Engagement, at the University of Cambridge, which hosts the CGI Secretariat. Since the launch of the World Economic Forum’s Principles in 2019, CGI Chapters have formed around the globe, of which CGI Greece is the 22nd.


The CGI Method

The Climate Governance Initiative mobilises boards of directors around the world to address climate change in their businesses. The Global Network of Chapters does this by developing and supporting national associations that equip their members with the skills and knowledge needed to make climate a boardroom priority building on the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Effective Climate Governance.
