Climate Change Network support sessions
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Climate Change and Energy Network has helped IEMA to deliver a series of support sessions, assisting members with ‘wicked’ challenges and confusing practice dilemmas.
These are available on the IEMA ‘Watch Again’ pages, with topics ranging from addressing climate change through environmental management systems or environmental impact assessments, to communicating effectively. We also helped develop new guidance for professionals on developments such as the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
One of the network’s initiatives is the Climate Change and Energy toolbox, which includes more than 50 entries, plus direct advice from professionals. We encourage members to use the guide, available in the IEMA Reading Room. Your feedback will help us to continually improve it.
We have also supported ‘Pledge to Net Zero’, an initiative to promote and showcase transition leadership. This is an opportunity for the sector to ‘walk the talk’ and drive emission reductions in our business models.
The network steering group is entering a new phase as we look towards COP26 and the post-COVID-19 world. What will the future economy hold for climate action, and can we embed any learning points from the adaptations we have had to make?
