ISO 14064-1:2006 Carbon Footprint Verification Awareness & Implementation Training Course
Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest challenges facing nations, governments, business and citizens over future decades. Climate change has implications for both human and natural systems and could lead to significant changes in resource use, production and economic activity. In response, international, regional, national and local initiatives are being developed and implemented to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere. Such GHG initiatives rely on the quantification, monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emissions and/or removals. This two days course details principles and requirements for designing, developing, managing and reporting organization - or company-level GHG inventories.
It includes requirements for determining GHG emission boundaries, quantifying an organization's GHG emissions and removals, and identifying specific company actions or activities aimed at improving GHG management. It also includes requirements and guidance on GHG inventory quality management, reporting, internal auditing and the organization's responsibilities for verification activities.
