A report from Deloitte finds that more than half of audit committees surveyed worldwide don’t discuss climate on a regular basis and almost half don’t consider themselves “climate literate.”

 

48%

of audit committee members said their committees weren’t “climate literate.”

 

42%

said that their organization’s climate response is not as swift and robust as they would like.

 

58%

said their audit committees don’t discuss climate change at all or as a fixed agenda item.

 

The report, titled The Audit Committee Frontier―addressing climate change, is available here.
