Climate Governance for NFP Directors: Starting the Journey to Net Zero


    Every organisation will need to understand and respond to climate change in the coming years. The challenges for not-for-profits (NFPs) are multi-faceted, complex and increasingly urgent. Many NFPs will face higher demand for their services due to climate change triggering more extreme weather events and significant economic change in communities.

    In recent years, directors of NFPs have consistently told us that they are concerned about climate change but unsure how to get started against competing priorities and limited resources. To assist NFP directors in addressing climate change governance, the AICD has developed a practical guide with PwC.

    This new guide provides a simple roadmap for NFPs seeking to make a difference at a local level. It includes tools and specific examples to take action to address climate change, such as reducing energy consumption or transitioning to renewable energy sources. 

    Specifically, the guide covers the following:

    1. Understanding and improving your organisation’s carbon footprint
    2. Understanding your climate governance obligations. 
    3. Considering stakeholder views on climate
    4. Assessing climate risks and developing mitigation measures
    5. Considering climate opportunities.
