There has been a fierce debate on the climate issue for a long time, and doubts have been raised about the human impact on the earth’s climate, as well as what this might mean. However, even at the highest political level in some of the most powerful countries, the case to disregard human impact on climate change is slowly disintegrating.
The world is slowly getting to where it wants to be, where a blanket understanding of climate change is concerned. There is also a gradual acceptance that the consequences of climate change have now joined war as the major perceived threats of the future; these two areas are also inextricably linked.
While several countries look to solve the challenges faced, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) accepts that this cannot happen without collaboration. The climate has no borders, and neither does ISO. One example of the work the ISO has done is the development of the ISO 14080 on greenhouse gas management, which is designed to be an umbrella standard for all types of organizations that develop and identify methods for analyzing needs and implementing climate actions.
