Climate change is a complex topic where knowledge and understanding is changing at a rapid pace.

Many organisations are placing more focus on the need to identify the risks and opportunities associated with climate change in order to best plan how to address these, for instance by integrating these into business resilience plans or building them into management systems such as ISO 14001.

This course has been designed for all those wishing to learn about climate change and the associated risks and opportunities, and how to manage these within a business. Typical attendees include environmental managers, sustainability managers, owners and directors.

  • The course is taught using a mixture of presentations and practical class exercises and activities. Topics covered will include:
  • The science of climate change
  • International policy and local legislation relevant to climate change
  • Risks and opportunities for your organisation and supply chain in designing policies to mitigate against climate change
  • An introduction to the available tools and resources for mitigating against climate change in your organisation

This material is embedded within the full day course: Carbon Footprinting and Management (including introduction to the GHG Protocol). Click here for more info. By attending the full day course, delegates automatically receive a certificate for both courses at no extra charge.
