Hardly a day goes by when we don’t see some kind of impact from climate change. Whether that is floating plastic islands in far-flung oceans or concern over weather patterns, concerns are everywhere. Consumers are also beginning to flex their buying power when it comes to environmental issues, from calling out companies on social media for excess packaging to looking for alternative products.
Businesses and organisation are not immune either, no matter from what sector or industry they dominate. Adapting to change brings risks and challenges, as it does opportunities, factors that are recognised in a new standard, ISO 14090 Adaptation to climate change – principles, requirements and guidelines.
