Onafhankelijk bestuurder bij Chapter Zero

Chapter Zero Brussels (represented by Climate Governance asbl/vzw) is the Directors' Climate Forum aiming at: 

  • Enabling Non-Executive Directors across Belux and the European Union to engage effectively in a strategic debate about the climate challenge for their businesses, and how they will contribute to achieving the EU’s target of net-zero emissions;
  • Being the voice of the global Chapter Zero and World Economic Forum Climate Governance Initiative towards key officials at the EU Commission, Council and Parliament

We are part of a Network of Chapters being launched under the WEF Climate Governance Initiative around the globe in order to provide board members with a climate forum and the related seminars, resources and trainings. Chapter Zero Brussels is active in the Belux, and throughout the European Union, in those countries where a national chapter zero doesn't exist yet. Chapter Zero Brussels had its inaugural conference early March with a refreshing panel including European Commissioner Reynders (Justice), J-M Jancovici (Prof. MINES ParisTech, President The Shift project), Natacha Lippens (Chair, Finasucre group), Jaap Winter (Director Randstad, Prof. in Corp. Governance Insead and VU Amsterdam). 

What we are looking for                                                   

  • Seasoned Non Executive Director ideally with current and/or previous mandates at listed companies;
  • Belgium or Luxembourg based;
  • Genuine interest in and basic knowledge of climate and/or biodiversity themes;
  • Willingness to build awareness among Directors and Boards alike around the climate change urgency and the actions to be taken;
  • Fluent in English.

Our Board of Directors currently comprises five committed directors with diverse backgrounds.
