Why Earth On Board?
Business cannot thrive in a world in shambles
The scale of environmental and social change and the inequality of its impacts are putting the stability and peace of the world at risk. Raw materials are becoming scarcer, levels of biodiversity are declining, pollution is growing and extreme weather events are multiplying.
Companies have a critical role to play in securing a better world
Companies are urged to adapt and build the solution: deploying their unique capacity for innovation and impact at scale to lead the profound transformation ahead.
Boards have a duty to take the lead
The Board and its directors must be at the forefront of an organisation’s response to social and environmental risks and opportunities. This is a consequence of its duties to act in the long-term interest of the company, exercise due diligence and comply with disclosure requirements.
We develop and support
Earth Competent Boards
We are developing a community of Earth Competent Board members
We foster legal, regulatory
and institutional frameworks consistent with that goal
Boards with members proficient in sustainability, with the right governance, asking management the right questions.
Recognising that peer exchange is key to driving transformation.
Because boards have a duty to take the lead that needs to be enforced.
