The Climate Governance Initiative Hong Kong Chapter (“CGI HK”) is a local Chapter of Climate Governance Initiative (“CGI”), which is composed of, currently, over 20 Chapters in over 50 countries.
The CGI HK Community is composed of directors, including both non-executive directors (“NEDs”) and executive directors (“EDs”), and subject matter experts.
Taking part in the global drive of Climate Governance Initiative’s Eight Principles, the Climate Governance Initiative Hong Kong Chapter (“CGI HK”) is committed to reaching out to directors with the objectives of advancing knowledge, motivating action and propagating board practice in climate governance.
To achieve its aim, CGI HK acts to empower, enable and engage directors in the following objectives:-
- 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 imposes on the success of their organisations.
To support directors in climate governance, CGI HK undertakes to develop and curate regular forums and training, organised for onsite and/or online participation, and to produce and share published information. These activities offer opportunities of learning by and interaction among NEDs, EDs and subject matter experts.
