Learn about carbon quantification techniques that provide the basis for developing and reporting an organisational carbon footprint on this IEMA certified Carbon Footprinting and Reporting training course.

The course includes an explanation of the many standards and schemes for greenhouse gas quantification, reporting and emissions reduction, and helps delegates understand which of them may be relevant for their organisations.

It also addresses the background to climate change and the drivers for taking action, and provides overview of key terminology.

Through engaging modules and workshops delegates will learn how to develop a footprint strategy, quantify carbon emissions, communicate the information internally and externally and, where relevant, prepare for external assurance.

The course is suitable for:

  • any individual involved in the practical tasks of developing carbon footprints
  • anyone with responsibility for managing the process

There are no formal entry requirements, although it is beneficial if individuals have some prior knowledge of environmental issues and management.

Individuals wanting a greater understanding of emissions reduction and the pathway to net zero should consider also attending the IEMA certified Pathways to Net Zero training course which is scheduled to run immediately after this course. A £95 discount is applied when booking both together.

Topics covered during the course include:

  • the background to climate change
  • climate change and climate action terminology
  • drivers for carbon quantification
  • carbon quantification standards and schemes
  • principles and techniques of carbon quantification, including
    • establishing inventory boundaries
    • determining sources of data for Scopes 1, 2 & 3
    • applying emissions quantification approaches
  • communicating carbon data
  • reducing emissions and Net Zero

On completion of this IEMA certified Carbon Footprinting and Reporting course, delegates will be able to:

  • explain the background to climate change and the drivers for taking action
  • identify the key standards for carbon footprinting and reporting
  • understand their relevance to their organisation and its objectives
  • plan and implement a carbon footprinting and reporting process
  • undertake or supervise carbon quantification tasks
  • prepare carbon data for reporting
  • understand the need for and benefits of good data quality and verification
