The Climate Leaders Coalition is a CEO-led community of close to 100 organisations leading the response to climate change through collective, transparent and meaningful action on mitigation and adaptation.
“Being a member of CLC has ensured that we continue committing publicly to appropriate targets and delivering on our change. This hasn’t necessarily been easy with changing priorities – but the CLC has meant we have come back to sustainability as part of our compass for true north.”
Lincoln Watson, CEO of ESP
Key benefits of joining the Coalition
We aim to hold at least one major in-person Coalition event each year, with smaller events throughout the year, including CEO-only events.
Adaptation Working Group
We run a joint Adaptation Working Group with the Sustainable Business Council. The group is co-chaired by IAG and brings together 17 organisations who are working to define what adaptation means for business, raise the profile of business adaptation, and increase adaptation capability across the membership.
We operate an opt-in business to business mentoring programme which enables signatories to mentor or be mentored by other signatories on areas to advance their organisation’s climate action. This allows for peer-to-peer support.
Support to meet the Statement of Ambition
We release guidance to help signatories meet the Statement of Ambition requirements and continue to look for ways to facilitate opportunities for signatories to build their collective capability and understand good practice including through the monthly Masterclass series and the business-to-business mentoring programme.
We hold online Masterclasses once a month. These are typically led by a signatory to help others understand good practice and make faster progress on their area of expertise. The Masterclasses focus on topics that enable signatories to build capability and support achievement of the Statement of Ambition requirements.
Advocacy for effective climate action
We support Aotearoa’s domestic and international climate commitments and work with SBC to promote the need for cross-party support for effective climate policy that provides the certainty that businesses and communities need to invest and transform. This includes consulting with signatories to develop comprehensive submissions on key climate policies like the Emissions Reduction Plan and National Adaptation Plan.
