Description: Increasingly companies around the world are undertaking assessments of their carbon footprints. The reasons for this include the growth of carbon tax legislation, voluntary compliance (CDP, GRI, and SRI) or just the realisation that it’s good for business. A carbon footprint can also be an excellent way to focus your team on reducing organisational costs. This course teaches learners how to conduct a carbon footprint assessment in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and ISO 14064 with a focus on clearly explaining each step required when conducting a world class carbon footprint for an organisation. Often the most complex part of conducting a carbon footprint is data gathering and in the course we teach important tools to overcome these hurdles. Key areas include: understanding the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, data gathering tools, setting boundaries, data assessment, data quality control, importance of verification and creating a report. The course also includes a module on how to sell the carbon footprint to your management or customer. Learners will be taken through a number of in depth case studies and practical examples.
