Climate change poses a substantial and complicated set of cascading of implications for an organization’s operations, stakeholders and mission. Conducting a comprehensive assessment of the change implications of climate change, and developing/implementing an effective responsible strategy requires full reconsideration of program design, products, processes, and strategic planning. Consequently, professionals across numerous roles and sectors will benefit from foundational competencies in lifecycle assessment and systems thinking.

ACCO and the American Center for Life-Cycle Assessment (ACLCA) are convening experts to establish a suite of training modules that will add to the practitioner’s climate change toolkit.

Participation in this task force is open to all ACCO members and individuals invited by ACCO.
