    Carbon footprint: GHG emissions inventory and action plan for businesses

    Forward-thinking businesses have already begun to voluntarily report their greenhouse gas emissions for cost reduction, brand protection and social responsibility purposes. The business world realizes that combating the consequences of climate change is not only a necessity, but also represents an economic opportunity. Those businesses that adapt will prosper, as they turn challenges into opportunities. The training program is ideal for learning how to quantify your company’s emissions, how to develop a GHG inventory, learn the main provisions of international standards ISO 14064, as well as the preparation of a GHG reduction Action Plan in your Company.
    If you are a mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, environmental engineer, energy and climate expert, sustainable mobility expert, environmental chemist, sustainability expert, consultant, technician, researcher, or any other professional keen on gaining knowledge on the topic of GHG emissions, join us on this educational seminar and benefit:
    • At knowledge level: to describe the emission mechanisms of greenhouse gases and relate them to the various sources, functions, and activities of the business/organization.
    • At skill level: Develop business/organizational GHG inventory reports and select strategies to manage their business’s carbon footprint and GHGs.
    • At attitude level: to participate in the formation of corporate decisions regarding matters of reducing the carbon footprint.

    The seminar is certified by Human Resource Development Authority of Cyprus (HRDA).
