Shared priorities: collaboration, mitigation, adaptation, and finance

The priorities set for COP27 by the host, as well as COP27's overarching theme, Together for implementation, resonate strongly with ISO's vision for international standards supporting climate action. ISO will encourage international and national decision-makers to engage further with ISO and its members on these priorities: collaboration, climate change mitigation, adaptation and sustainable finance.

Fostering collaborative climate action

Collaboration is at the heart of what ISO does. Our delegation at COP27 will be strengthening and exploring partnerships with a view to build on existing climate aligned standards and inspire new ones. Policy makers as well as non-state actors interested in knowing more about the role of standards in climate action or willing to contribute their expertise to ISO's work are invited to meet us there.
