Carbon Accounting is a vital tool in enabling organizations to measure and report on their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As the need to respond to the causes and impacts of climate change becomes increasingly urgent, emissions calculations and inventories are a vital first step towards mastering climatic risk.
WEBINAR: Carbon Accounting: Calculate, Reduce, Offset, and Disclose Your CO2 Emissions
Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET
Join Professor Arnaud Brohé for an accessible and comprehensive overview of carbon accounting. Arnaud will discuss the various methods and instruments used by countries, cities, and companies to calculate, reduce and internalize the cost of carbon – including a comparison of production vs. consumption GHG inventories and a discussion on carbon taxation, carbon markets and voluntary offsetting. Learn how these methodologies and instruments stem not simply from the aim of reducing emissions for the lowest cost, but more as a compromise between divergent interests and individual world views.
Special emphasis will be placed on case studies and practical examples of how to calculate, reduce, offset and disclose your carbon footprint.
Like other management tools, carbon accounting may not be an exact science, but its contribution has never been more important. This webinar will help prepare you to understand carbon flows and stocks and to take action with your employers and clients.
