Build your carbon-sector skills and knowledge online with our #1 course in Strategic Carbon Management

A world-class course for performance managing business greenhouse gas emissions.
The Strategic Carbon Management Course's purpose is to give you a clear, comprehensive understanding of the most important concepts of managing an organization's greenhouse gas emissions in one accessible course.
The job of managing greenhouse gas emissions in a workplace can be pretty straightforward once you understand some important ideas and principles and apply a rigorous framework to your methodology. However, that being said, if you get it wrong it can be disastrous - hence the importance of learning how to do it right.
By the end of the Strategic Carbon Management course you will have built a working draft Emissions Management Action Plan (EMAP) using real data and have an implementation strategy well underway.

Tutorial 1

Tutorial 5

Carbon Offsets
The consequences of a carbon offsets purchase can have ramifications for your entire business. It should be a fully informed process for managing risks and aligning outcomes.
Whether you are working towards carbon neutrality or preparing to be part of the compliance market make sure you have equipped yourself with the knowledge and skills to source, evaluate and purchase the right carbon offsets that deliver organizational objectives.

Tutorial 6

Life Cycle Assessment
Supply chain GHG emissions, which include those associated with processes not controlled by the company itself, can be measured at either the company level or the level of an individual product.
Measuring the carbon footprint of products across their full life cycle is a powerful way for your organization to collect the information it needs to reduce GHG emissions, identify cost savings and incorporate emissions impact into decision making.

Tutorial 7

Implementing an Emissions Management Action Plan
Your attention here will turn to the implementation and monitoring of your Emissions Management Action Plan.
While the formulation of a robust, comprehensive and relevant EMAP is paramount to succeeding with targeted carbon reduction goals across the organization, without thorough and successful strategies for the implementation of your EMAP, the plan in itself will have little effect on carbon reduction action.
To succeed an EMAP must be integrated into the existing systems, processes and culture of the organization which requires buy-in, engagement and support from all levels of the organization.
