Consumers, employees and major investors are increasingly choosing climate-friendly brands. This course explains how a rigorous approach to carbon performance management will enable you to measure your organisation's carbon emissions and understand how to manage and reduce your carbon footprint.

    Organisations in all sectors are facing increasing pressure to improve their carbon performance. Consumers are choosing brands that are climate friendly, employees are becoming selective about whom they want to work for, and major investors are diverting huge funds towards those companies that can prove they are managing their carbon footprint effectively. 

    Improve your understanding of carbon performance through this course with modules on the current international standards, the impact of greenhouse gases and the three different Scopes of measurement. You will learn how to measure your organisation's carbon emissions and understand how to manage and reduce your carbon footprint. 

    Topics include: 

    • International standards 
    • Greenhouse gas emissions 
    • Measuring carbon emissions 
    • Scope 3 emissions 
    • Calculating climate impact 
    • Managing carbon performance
