In brief: In recent years, investors have increasingly engaged boards on issues pertaining to climate change. With this consideration in mind, NACD has developed a comprehensive checklist of what directors should know before speaking with investors about climate change. Learn more about how best to discuss climate change with investors, how best to answer questions regarding the company’s climate change approach, and the steps that your board can take to avoid raising red flags.

This checklist can help your board to

  • prepare for discussions with investors on topics surrounding climate change,
  • strategize the best communication tactics when discussing climate change mitigation efforts with investors, and
  • avoid raising red flags.
