Our Financial Times #PlansBeyondPledges series

We’re calling NEDs and their boards to action, with a focus on net zero pledges and the transition plans supporting them. The time is now.

No matter how hard it might seem, now is the time for business leaders to transform net zero ambitions into robust plans and measurable action. We’re running our #PlansBeyondPledges campaign alongside a series of adverts in the Financial Times to put the spotlight on the need for boards and businesses to set, challenge and progress their net zero targets and transition plans.

Have you seen them?

This #PlansBeyondPledges series runs until early December, over the annual global climate change conference COP27.

We’re working with partners to explore different topics you need to consider and giving you places to start and tools to try as our members, their boards and businesses tackle this complex transition.
