Carbon Footprint Accounting: Scope 1 and 2 GHG Emissions

Online

The international community unanimously agrees that there is no doubt about the urgency of the climate crisis. Climate change is increasingly affecting government and private sector organizations. To be resilient in the face of this reality, organizations must plan and implement decarbonization plans to help them contribute to the fight against climate change, mitigate its effects on their activities, and take advantage of growth and sustainable development opportunities. Decarbonization planning involves setting greenhouse gas (GHG) emission mitigation targets and carbon neutrality objectives. The first step in organizational planning is quantifying GHG emissions (carbon footprint). Visit cietcanada.com to learn more about this course and to register (website link below)
