ABOUT THE GHG ACCOUNTING LEAD VERIFIER TRAINING COURSE

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 decarbonisation 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 organisational level, the international standard ISO 14064-1 has been introduced. ISO 14064 provides organisations with a unified tool for measuring, quantifying, and reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) and achieving carbon neutrality.

This GHG accounting lead verifier course outlines principles and requirements for establishing, producing, monitoring, reporting and validating organisation - or company-level GHG inventories.
