About this course

An increasing number of organisations, of all sizes and sectors, are placing a focus on Carbon Accounting, Carbon Management and Carbon Reporting.

  • Legal compliance*
  • Meeting customer expectations
  • Continuous improvement (supports ISO 14001)
  • Managing climate related risks and opportunities
  • Financial savings
  • Moral responsibility

*Companies Act 2006 (Strategic and Directors’ Reports) Regulations 2013, Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting (MGHG) requires quoted companies to report their annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their directors’ report.

*Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) 2019 requires UK companies (quoted, large & LLPs) to report on energy use & greenhouse gas emissions in annual Directors’ Report.

The course provides an introduction to climate change, carbon footprinting (GHG Accounting), carbon management and energy management, carbon reporting and carbon reduction. It presents an overview of different methodologies (e.g. the Greenhouse Gas Protocol) to identify, quantify and account and report GHG emissions and plan actions to reduce these.

The aim is to equip learners with the knowledge and skills to identify, quantify and report GHG emissions in their organisations (the carbon footprint) and plan action to reduce these emissions.

Who should attend?

Anyone wishing to learn about MGHG Reporting and SECR compliance requirements, climate risk and carbon management and ways to measure, monitor, report and reduce their contribution to it. Typical attendees include owners and directors, sustainability managers, facilities managers, financial managers and environmental managers.
