Introduction to the new ISO requirement on Climate Change

If your organization has implemented or plans to implement a management system based on one of the management system standards ISO 9001, 14001, 45001, 27001, 22000 or 50001, you need to ensure that climate change is included in your organization's context analysis and consider the relevance of climate change risks as part of the analysis. Attend our two-hour online mini course and get the knowledge you need to fulfil the new requirements.

On 29 February ISO published an addendum to existing and new management system standards that companies can be certified to. It requires organizations to always assess the relevance of climate change risks in their risk analysis and in relation to stakeholder needs. The change follows ISO's London Declaration, where ISO commits to combat climate change and contribute to the climate agenda.

In this course you will gain insight into:

  • The background to the new ISO requirements on climate change
  • What are the requirements and how they affect your organization
  • What you as a company must do and what to expect in connection with upcoming audits
  • Overview of the most important ISO standards that support the work to reduce your company's climate impact.
