"Very useful for a sustainability manager who wants to understand and qualify to do GHG reporting."
"The course was excellent. I learned a good deal by asking direct questions from the professor and his answers were thorough and engaging. I also learned from reading the professor’s responses to other student’s questions. I would recommend this course to anyone trying to understand the GHG accounting process."
"The course was a wonderful experience because the instructor provided good materials for learning GHG organizational entity level reporting, including Power Point modules accessible 24/7, good discussion questions that narrowed down important concepts, and specific GHG calculation exercises covering scope 1 direct emissions (stationary, mobile, process, and fugitive) that help students learn more easily."
"This course has helped me immensely to strengthen my understanding of concepts related to GHG accounting."
"I already had a moderate level understanding of GHG Accounting but I still felt that I gained a lot of great new insight. The applied discussions and homework assignments that tested your knowledge were extremely valuable. This course was quite rigorous and did require a lot of time, i.e. you are getting what you pay for. Highly recommended."
"The course has provided me with a solid framework. Information has been presented clearly and concisely with good concrete working examples. Additional reading material has been fantastic. Our course co-ordinator has been a source of invaluable insight, thank you Neil!"
why take this course:
Many organizations are actively recalibrating operations to manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (often referred to simply as "carbon" emissions).
By proactively managing their carbon emissions, organizations can minimize their impact on the planet, prepare for regulation, increase energy efficiency, and build their profile as an environmental leader.
Developing an inventory of the sources and emissions is an essential first step in this process. This course is for those interested in a thorough introduction to GHG accounting, incorporating key standards and best practices.
This course is ideal for corporate sustainability managers, inventory managers, financial officers, auditors and other individuals interested in developing career skills in greenhouse gas accounting.
