JOINT GLOBAL STATEMENT ON CLIMATE CHANGE FROM THE PROFESSIONAL BODIES FOR COACHING, COACHING PSYCHOLOGY, MENTORING & SUPERVISION
COLLABORATION OF COACHING BODIES ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS
“In a unique collaboration ISCP has joined with Six other leading coaching, coaching psychology, mentoring and supervision professional bodies who signed a global statement committing themselves to collaborative action and a collective voice on the climate and biodiversity crisis. Given our role in developing individuals, and in creating social value, we have committed to work together to play our part in addressing the climate emergency.
We recognize that no one body will have sufficient impact, and that the facts of the ecological crisis are compelling so we have joined the six bodies* in undertaking several joint commitments. Raising awareness and knowledge with our members and providing a safe and challenging space for them to reflect on and reconsider their role and their practice are central. ISCP will now, along with the other bodies, regularly review and revise their shared commitments and active promises in light of the shifting landscape and we will continue to pool resources and model collective leadership.”
* The other signatories are:
AC (Association for Coaching), APAC (Asia Pacific Alliance of Coaches), APECS (Association for Professional Executive Coaching and Supervision), EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council), ICF (International Coach Federation), COMENSA (Coaches and Mentors of South Africa).

ISCP CLIMATE CHANGE GROUP
The ISCP aims to offer an ongoing commitment to social improvement, the environment and climate change.
We have taken action in a number of ways including our wish to promote and share information about the work of our members in areas such as the charitable, not-for-profit, voluntary and community coaching psychology services. In 2019, we had a Special Section within Coaching Psychology International (the Society’s Journal) on the topic of Ecopsychology informed coaching psychology. At our recent 9th International Congress of Coaching Psychology event in London (October, 2019) we also had an Ecopsychology Stream and Climate Change exhibition stand.
In 2020, the Society will be sharing new guidelines and initiatives from our ISCP Climate Working Group. More details will be available soon.
