Carbon footprinting is the starting point of company’s journey to reducing their impact on global warming. A carbon footprint benchmark is established that gives detailed CO2 impacts from all the energies, resources and materials used in the business. Specific datasets are collected and organized in clear templates to establish this benchmark. The organisations are trained to understand the types of data to be collected, and the CO2 impacts associated with the various energies, resources and materials that are measured. It enables companies to understand the global warming impacts of their operations, identify
environmental hotspots and to take action to reduce these impacts.
Course Objectives and Learning Outcomes
Through knowing their carbon footprint, we will help participants to understand how to measure and report climate change and carbon emissions and how to assess climate risk and opportunity in their organisations. We will share examples of best practise and recommended approaches to setting targets and pathways towards Net Zero and explain other Science based targets.
