Course Description

Climate change is one of the most serious concerns that countries throughout the world are facing. Globally, industries are redesigning their business strategies to focus on decarbonization in order to minimize climate change and GHG emissions. The first step in this process is to create a GHG inventory.
Determining the GHG inventory/Carbon Footprint requires understanding of sources of emissions, collection relevant data and implementing effective GHG management system. Intended to set or quantify Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions inventory in organizational level, the international standard ISO 14064-1 has been introduced.
