New ISO standards, including ISO 9001, will include additional requirements related to climate change. These fortunately do not involve carbon neutrality goals, but do require organizations to consider climate change and also potential requirements of relevant interested parties.

Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will show how existing processes to assess and mitigate risks due to force majeure, including climate-driven weather events, might already meet the new requirements. It will also show why costly efforts to achieve carbon neutrality are likely to be a waste of supply chain resources, although measures to reduce energy wastes enable higher profits, higher wages, and lower profits simultaneously.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Clause 4.1 of ISO standards related to the context of the organization will add a requirement to determine whether climate change is relevant to the organization's management system. Clause 4.2 will add that relevant interested parties may have requirements related to climate change.
  • Climate change is important but not urgent. It is important because it is a fact of nature, and it can create risks to supply chains and therefore continuity of operations. It is not urgent because (1) a substantial portion is driven by Nature and not controllable by humans and (2) many of those who say it is urgent use private jets to attend climate conferences, and otherwise do not walk their talk. Many sellers of carbon offsets have profit agendas but add no value to the supply chain. Organizations should not be pressured or stampeded into Net Zero, carbon neutrality, or similar agendas.
  • Actions taken to reduce energy waste, e.g. with the aid of the iSO 50001:2018 standard for energy management systems, reduce supply chain costs to deliver higher wages, higher profits, and lower prices. As most energy is ultimately fungible via the power grid with fossil fuels, energy efficiency also reduces carbon emissions. A key takeaway is that many energy wastes can hide in plain view.
  • Force majeure (greater force, events not under anybody's control) can disrupt supply chains and therefore continuity of operations. Some, like earthquakes and acts of war, are not related to climate but weather events are. The good news is that, if your company has processes with which to address these risks, it is already considering climate change and thus addresses the new requirement for Clause 4.1 regarding context of the organization.
  • Individuals who want to offset their carbon emissions can sponsor trees via the US Forest Service, which does not have a profit motive; it is there to plant trees. Trees may be far more cost-effective than direct air capture (DAC) plants that seek to extract carbon dioxide from the air. This underscores the dysfunctional nature of many carbon neutrality and Net Zero agendas.
