UKAS and CWEIC joint webinar on the role of standards and accreditation in supporting climate change

Join UKAS and the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council for a webinar exploring the role of standards and accreditation in supporting climate change.

The webinar is on Tuesday 23rd November from 12.00 – 13.00.

Standards are a trusted, global methodology and framework which can be used by both governments and industry to deliver real change. Trade across borders flows more easily because of standards and accreditation.

Around 24,000 international standards developed by the ISO underpin every major supply chain. The use of standards, especially international ones, makes it easier to produce, sell, and buy products and services, enabling global trade, driving growth and creating jobs.

This webinar will explore the practical ways governments, businesses and organisations across the global economy can accelerate their climate action by using trusted standards aligned with robust net zero targets, in order to facilitate wider and faster climate action in this race to a zero-carbon world.

For example, the ISO 14001 environmental management certification helps businesses of all sizes across all sectors make their day-to-day operations more sustainable, which can ultimately save money, whilst providing assurance to management, employees and external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

Speakers will include:

– Lord Marland –  Chairman, CWEIC
– Matt Gantley –  CEO, United Kingdom Accreditation Service
– Lord Lindsay –  Chairman, United Kingdom Accreditation Service
– Martin Baxter – Director of Policy and External Affairs, @Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA)
