This intensive one-day course is designed to equip delegates with an appreciation and understanding of the basics of carbon footprints and carbon accounting, how to calculate their own company footprint and how to simply manage and reduce the size of their carbon footprint.

Larger businesses are legally required to calculate their carbon footprint for the carbon emissions they are directly responsible for (Scope 1) and the emissions the electricity supplied (Scope 2). Scope 3 emissions is the largest potential category for many businesses and includes the supply chain which to date has been voluntary to calculate. Many large businesses are focusing their NetZero approach to include Scope 3 emissions so companies are now asking all of the businesses they deal with to supply data on their own carbon emissions. If you are part of a supply chain for a larger business and are being asked information on your own carbon footprint then this is the course to help you.


1 Day, 09.00 - 17.00
