Carbon Reporting - In Association with the CIA

Carbon Reporting - In Association with the CIA

When: Tue 24 Nov, 2020
Where: Virtual Learning Environment

Why attend?

New government legislation came into force last year which now mandates all UK registered large enterprises to report their carbon emissions. This is the latest development in the increasing scope of mandatory carbon reporting, following on from other schemes such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment, European Union Emissions Trading System, and Climate Change Agreements. In addition, organisations are increasingly aware of the need to understand the carbon impacts of their operations and processes with a number of organisations setting Net Zero/Carbon Neutral targets. The course will provide an insight into; the methodologies and principles of carbon reporting, an overview of the mandatory reporting schemes and who is captured by the legislation, voluntary carbon reporting and what the various schemes and terms involve/mean, and the benefits of understanding your carbon emissions.
