Introduction to Greenhouse Gas Management, Accounting, and Reporting - NG-51


About the Course

Climate change is a key sustainable development issue, and transitioning to a low-carbon economy is now imperative. Most governments are taking steps to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions based on international and governmental standards and recommendations such as The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, ISO14064/14067/14080, CARB, ASHRAE/ICC 240P, IFRS S1 and IFRS S2 (ISSB) and NIST among others. This is done through national policies that include the introduction of emissions trading programs, voluntary programs, carbon or energy taxes, and regulations and standards on energy efficiency and emissions.

Organizations must be able to understand and manage their GHG risks if they are to ensure long-term success and to be prepared for future national or regional climate policies. A well-designed and maintained corporate GHG inventory (carbon footprint) is essential to manage these risks effectively.

The course is a combination of theory, case studies, and practical exercises.

The course is also available as an online course available on-demand.
