About us

In recent years, climate change has posed an increasing risk not only to humanity, but to the entire planet and the global economy. It is clear that climate change needs to be addressed collectively - by individuals, businesses and governments. At the same time, it is becoming clear that the links between climate change and business are inseparable. This is why it will be difficult to tackle the climate crisis effectively without the active engagement of industry and business. Investors, regulators and other stakeholders are now calling on business to take responsibility and adopt a comprehensive, strategic approach to tackling the crisis. But many management and supervisory boards are faced with the question of how to integrate a viable and effective green transition strategy into their business models.

For this purpose, we have established Chapter Zero Slovenia, the Slovenian Chapter of the Climate Governance Initiative, which was launched in 2019 in cooperation with the World Economic Forum. The Chapter network currently covers more than 50 countries, with more national Chapters in development all of the time. Chapter Zero Slovenia was established in 2023 on the initiative of the British-Slovenian Chamber of Commerce, the host organisation, Slovenian Directors' Association and Deloitte Slovenia, which together form the Management Board of the Chapter Zero Slovenia.

The aim of Chapter Zero Slovenia is to develop the competences of supervisory and management boards of companies in Slovenia to start addressing and tackling climate change and to equip themselves with the skills and knowledge on how to make climate change a boardroom priority.

Being a member of Chapter Zero Slovenia is free of charge.
