Carbon 101 is a half-day introductory course to climate change and what this means for businesses. The course is split into four parts designed to give the attendee a greater understanding of what climate change is, how this could impact business, and how to report and reduce carbon emissions.
The four parts of the course are:
- Introduction to climate change – starting with the science behind climate change, looking at regulation and policy and ending with the challenge we have (as a country, as businesses and personally to reduce our carbon footprint).
- Business and climate change – showing why businesses should care about climate change, the risks and opportunities it brings and introducing the carbon management process.
- Carbon Accounting – defining the process for setting boundaries, gathering data, measuring emissions, reporting and developing carbon baselines.
- Climate Strategies – following on from reporting, this section will look at the areas a business must address in order develop strong targets and a roadmap of how to deliver.
