COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference hosted recently in Glasgow, saw a delegation from Imperial College London join this major global summit to put their expertise and research to use in support of ambitious climate action.
No matter what sort of organisation you work in, you will be impacted in some way by both the physical effects of our changing climate and the wealth of regulations and targets we are increasingly required to meet.
In 2020, during the build-up to COP26, the Centre for Continuing Professional Development teamed up with The Institute of Risk Management (IRM) and The Grantham Institute to successfully deliver our first go-to practical online training course on Climate Change Risk Management. Building on world-leading expertise in the science of climate change, business management and enterprise risk management, this practical course not only allows learners to explore why managing climate change risk is important to their organisation but also how to do it.
Since the launch of the first online course in April 2020, our partnership with the IRM is going from strength to strength, and we will continue to deliver this important and popular training programme 3 times annually. The next course is 8-9 December and we now have confirmed dates for 14-15 March 2022
