GHG I - Introduction to GHG Management & Establishing the Base Year GHG Inventory
In this 1 day program get a solid understanding of GHG Management requirements under the Carbon Disclosure Project and ISO 14064. Do GHG emission calculations using your own data and get answers to your questions on operational and organizational boundaries, direct and indirect emissions, base year and data collection requirements.
Stay for GHG II - Advanced GHG Management and learn about base year recalculation (including new protocols on supply chain and life cycle data, data quality and management, verification and using the GHG Inventory and key performance indicators.

What Participants Say About SLC GHG Courses:
(we allow our participants to comment anonymously so they can feel free to be brutually honest in their assessments).
A highly informative discussion and overview on GHG reporting that provides a thorough understanding of the principles and practices of GHG reporting, planning and management. Andrew Service, VP Finance, Dare Foods
"Very interesting, my first webinar, very productive."
"I enjoyed the group learning and different active exercises,Community of Practice, assignments, additional reading."
"Well laid out! Doing the hands on exercises made everything more real."
"By the end of the course, I realized I had gained knowledge of the policy context for GHG management and the tools and resources I needed for reducing institutional emissions. I learned lots!" Ellen Field
