Introduction to Carbon Footprinting and Accounting

About this training module:

This course provides you with the skills to calculate the carbon footprint of your organisation and produce a carbon footprint report. The course provides a step-by-step breakdown of carbon footprint calculation, from identifying sources of greenhouse gas emissions in your organisation, collecting data to using freely available carbon conversion tools to calculate carbon emissions.

Measuring your Carbon Footprint helps you to understand the energy consumption of your organisation and identify the greenhouse emissions associated with your organisation’s activities. It will assist in identifying opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of your organisation and cut costs at the same time.

Who is it for?

This course is ideal for anyone wanting to understand how a carbon footprint is calculated or wants to calculate the carbon footprint for their organisation.

UK regulation now requires large businesses to report on greenhouse gas emissions along with their financial reporting.

Measuring your Carbon Footprint may soon become a reality for smaller and medium size enterprises either through direct regulation or through the supply chain. This course will help you to understand how to calculate and report the greenhouse gas emissions of your organisation.

On successful completion, delegates will be able to:

  • Understand what a carbon footprint is
  • Understand the drivers and benefits of carbon footprint calculation
  • Identify sources of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in an organisation
  • Set the boundaries of the carbon footprint
  • How to compile a carbon footprint report

I learned the complexities of carbon reporting and understood the scope and influence we have as a business.

I came away with a lot of questions but also tooled with the next steps once I got an answer!

Tamma is passionate about sustainability and managed to make a relatively dry subject topic fascinating and really understood where we are coming from as a business, her enthusiasm is contagious and we can’t help but get swept along!
