Chapter Zero

The 2023 collaboration between Chapter Zero and McKinsey is a series of face-to-face events exploring the latest thinking on the impact non-executives can have in the boardroom to help their organisations achieve net zero.

Getting to net zero and a sustainable future beyond that will require tremendous, rapid change and large-scale technology deployment across industries. The transition will create massive opportunities to build entirely new businesses, opening new markets and imperilling others. Businesses that innovate quickly and collaborate effortlessly across value chains will take advantage of many growth opportunities and evolve their climate strategy to risk-based resilience with strategic value creation. 

A central idea this decade is achieving low carbon growth. How should institutions across the UK (and beyond) double down at the intersection of decarbonisation and economic growth? What are the ‘green prizes’ and where are the structural advantages and drawbacks? How can boards steer their managements teams to pursue green prizes systematically? What impetus will the global context offer – resurgent economies, new climate frameworks, changing financial flows, shifting supply chains, and evolving human behaviours?

The session will investigate ‘mobilising boards to inspire management agendas.’ In particular how can they plant the seed for pursuing green prizes? How do they motivate value creating transition plans? When should they evangelise on high value albeit high risk moves? How would they help their management teams steer the course given diverse shareholder objectives?
