ISO and IAF Joint Communiqué about Climate Change


ISO and IAF have edited today a Joint Communiqué detailing the incorporation of Climate Change considerations into existing and new ISO Management Systems Standards (MSS) as part of their commitment to addressing climate action. It outlines the decision to add two new statements to the MSS to ensure organizations consider the impact of climate change on their management systems.

The changes aim to integrate climate change considerations into the design and implementation of management systems, emphasizing the importance of addressing climate change alongside other management system requirements.

The document also lists specific standards that will be amended to include these new considerations.

For example:

  • ISO/IEC 27001 is in the scope
  • ISO 15378 too, but not ISO 13485...
