Climate change is a global emergency and business has a crucial role to play in the transition to net-zero. Boards need to ensure they take the lead and are able to guide their companies.
Boards Impact Forum is proud to announce four key learning and action initiatives to help board members and their stakeholders to accelerate the action and impact.
Boards Impact Forum, the Nordic Chapter of the Climate Governance Initiative in collaboration with World Economic Forum, engages board directors to accelerate climate actions and innovation for a sustainable business and a sustainable world.
We are now launching a Digital Insight and inspiration Program, as well as a separate but linked Virtual Peer Exchange Program, to increase the insights of the board’s role, company impact assessment, strategy adjustment, transition planning and reporting. The program is based on the eight Climate Governance Principles developed by World Economic Forum.
A Progress Survey is provided to help reflect on the board and the company progress, with an opportunity to compare some of the key areas with others.
A Reflection Guide with key questions is provided to help reflect on the individual areas that will improve board effectiveness to help guide their companies.
Outline of the programs
The Digital Climate Learning Journey for board members, starts on February 1 and runs for 50 days until March 22. One day at a time will be revealed and you can always go back and look at days you might have missed. Every day you will get insights taking 5 minutes to 1 hour to consume, and you will be asked to reflect on questions relating to the insight.
The Virtual Peer Exchange Program includes four meetings, is exclusive to Boards Impact Forum Members, it’s free of charge but will be application based. Program Exchange invites will go out directly to members. If you are a board member and would you like to join Boards Impact Forum, learn below how to join. The Virtual Peer Exchanges will be held under Chatham House rules including discussions in smaller groups. The four planned exchanges will be held as 90 minutes sessions, during Feb 18 and Mar 3, 14, 23 at 10.15-11.45 CET. We recommend that participants join all four exchanges but may join also individual exchanges. The four exchanges focus
- Board accountability, competence and effectiveness
- Board assessment of risks & opportunities with related strategy integration and transition plans
- Board actions on incentivization, reporting and disclosure
- Board ensurance of stakeholder exchanges
Boards Impact Forum is also running, by invitation only, two additional virtual peer exchange programs, with a senior chair and board member group and an exclusive chairman group.
After these first programs, we will evaluate and adjust the programs to continuously make our support for board members more impactful.
