There are over 20 Chapters of Climate Governance Initiative globally in over 50 countries with over 100,000 member boards.
Core mission of CGI Chapters: to promote the implementation of the CGI Principles, by mobilising directors to address climate change in their businesses and providing a range of engagement opportunities aimed at enhancing their skills in this area.
Objectives of CGI Chapters in facilitating directors:
- To enable directors to gain climate awareness and skills
- To embed climate considerations into board decision-making
- To understand and act upon the risks and opportunities that the climate emergency impose on the success of their organisations
The Hong Kong Institute of Directors is pleased to have been tasked to host the local Chapter of CGI. Taking part in the global drive, the CGI Hong Kong Chapter (“CGI HK”) will reach out to directors with the objectives of advancing knowledge, motivating action and propagating board practice in climate governance.
