Climate Change and Climate Change Awareness Training Course
Who should attend?
Anyone 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.
Climate change is a complex topic where knowledge and understanding is continuing to expand. 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 climate change training course will provide an introduction to climate change and the associated risks and opportunities. The aim is to equip learners with the knowledge and skills to effectively identify and plan for the risks and opportunities relevant to their organisation in order to increase business resilience and maximise on the opportunities.
Successful learners will be able to:
~ Confidently discuss the science of climate change
~ Outline the drivers for action on climate risk including international policy and local legislation
~ Identify associated risks and opportunities as relevant to their organisation and supply chain
~ Explain the business case for climate change mitigation and adaptation
~ Plan how to act in order to minimise the risks and maximise on the opportunities
~ Access tools and additional resources to support further action if desired.
Practical exercises and activities throughout the course and end of course review.
