The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Climate Governance Initiative (CGI)  are supporting the launch of Chapter Zero Egypt to promote the understanding and adoption of effective climate governance practices among corporates and financial institutions in the country.


CGI’s global network of more than 25 national and regional chapters promotes the adoption of the Principles for Effective Climate Governance published by the World Economic Forum (WEF). Established in 2019, CGI aims to equip its members with the skills and knowledge to make addressing climate change a boardroom priority.


Chapter Zero Egypt is the 27th chapter to join the CGI global network. It is also the first in Africa and the southern and eastern Mediterranean region and has the technical support of BDO Egypt consulting and LOBBY EGYPT Communication Advisory .


This new platform will enable the development and sharing of expertise between non-executive directors, senior management business leaders and policy and technical experts to ensure that good climate governance practices are communicated to boost low-carbon development, sustainable enterprise and economic growth.
