World Economic Forum: How Corporate Boards Can Take Action on Climate Change
To offer an effective response to global requests from corporations and investors on corporate climate governance, the World Economic Forum, in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers, developed a set of climate governance principles. The principles led to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Since the launch of these principles at the World Economic Forum in January, non-executive directors have set up national board networks or chapters to roll out and test them.
Italy was the first country to set up a network to provide concrete answers to the boards of directors on the issue of good climate governance.
Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, as scientific and research partner, Italian Chapter on Climate Competent Boards Initiative (WEF) and NED Community, the first network of non-executive directors of boards, are regularly involved in seminars, webinars and conferences on how corporate boards can take action on climate change.
