Chapter Zero Türkiye, launched in 2023 as part of the Climate Governance Initiative (CGI), aims to facilitate the effective allocation of finance towards climate change and promote the widespread adoption of climate risk management in investment and decision-making processes. Its objective is to ensure a smooth transition to a low-carbon economy.

The core mission of the initiative is to promote the implementation of the World Economic Forum’s Principles for Effective Climate Governance in line with CGI Charter, while equipping non-executive directors with skills and knowledge to make climate change a boardroom priority.


The Climate Governance Initiative was launched in 2019 at the World Economic Forum. It responds directly to the need of providing management and supervisory bodies of companies with an understanding of the impact of climate change on business and the impact of business on climate change, to enable making the best possible decisions to minimize the risk of climate change.

The purpose of the Climate Governance Initiative  is to build a community of board directors and equip them to lead crucial boardroom discussions on the impacts of climate change. Members will be able to join a network of experts in governance and climate transition, made available to them through local initiatives in Türkiye and globally within an international network of other “chapters”.

To help them do this, our programmes are designed so our members can engage with the topics and areas that are relevant to them. This includes events, workshops, toolkits and other content designed for those who are just starting to engage with climate change in their boardroom, as well as more in-depth activities for those who are more experienced. Through these programmes we offer learning opportunities, access to expertise, tailored knowledge and connections with peers.
