ISO 14090 – Adaptation to Climate Change: Principles, Requirements and Guidelines (published July 2019)
We provide the first ever training courses on the adaptation to climate change international standard targeted training courses on ISO 14090. The standard is not a council of perfection; it takes a continuous improvement approach. It guides the understanding of current strengths and opportunities. It enables organisations to efficiently build on current practice to develop the adaptive practice the organisation needs to manage the climate change risks and opportunities that it has identified.
The strength of Climate Sense training: The Climate Sense team led and played a key part in developing the standard and are now leading its implementation.
Who is the training aimed at? The training is of value to those in your organisation with interest and responsibility for adaptation outcomes, as well as courses designed to train trainers.
What will the training give them? Participants will become familiar with the full range of steps required for effective climate adaptation as described by the standard.
See our dedicated climate adaptation training website for more information.
Embedding Training into Practice Through Coaching
Training is intended as part of a programme to change practice. What training does well is to give the information needed to change our practice. Gaining knowledge and changing what is done are completely different processes. How well change actually happens depends both on the quality of the training and on what happens after training has ended.
With training alone, there is often a brief increase in performance and then a dip leaving trainees remembering only 35% of what they learned after 12 months with most of that loss occurring in the first few weeks.
Training followed by coaching greatly increases the retention of training knowledge and more effectively changes actions on the basis of that knowledge by as much as 40%.
To enable trainees to get the best value from their training, Climate Sense’s Nick Pyatt leads a panel of qualified business coaches to enable more effective change in practice resulting from Climate Sense’s high quality training.
