Carbon Reporting in association with Chemical Industries Association

Government legislation 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. This course will provide an insight into; the methodologies and principals 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.
