ISO 14090 Tailored Training


ISO 14090 – Adaptation to Climate Change: Principles, Requirements and Guidelines (published July 2019)

We provide targeted training courses on ISO 14090 - the first ever international standard on adaptation to climate change. We have courses to train your organisations climate change champions, as well as courses designed to train trainers.

Our training modules are designed and delivered by leading experts on ISO 14090. Our Director John Dora was Convener (Chair) of the international working group who wrote the standard. Our Director Doogie Black was the UK Principal Expert and is one of the standard’s main authors.

We know the evolution and rationale behind all of ISO 14090’s clauses (sections) and provide tailored training modules that reflect the key steps in implementing them.

No matter how advanced you are in adapting to climate change, our courses are tailored to your needs (whether you are just starting out or leading the way). Through our training, you will quickly gain an in-depth knowledge of how ISO 14090 can best serve your needs.

Embedding Adaptation to Climate Change (ACC) within new and existing standards

Climate Sense also provides training and guidance on how to embed ACC into existing and new standards. If you are a standards producing body yourself, or you are involved in influencing their development in other ways (e.g. an industry representative, financier, or national body), then we can provide training and consultancy support tailored to your specific needs.

Our team has a proven track record of providing such training and support. Please see our projects page and consultancy page for examples of our work.
