What’s in it for you?

Join us for an intensive, hands-on master class designed for individuals and organizations eager to master carbon accounting. Dive deep into current standards and reporting frameworks, including EU regulations, the GHG protocol, ISO norms, and the GLEC framework. Gain strategic and operational insights essential for developing a robust carbon accounting system.

During the course, you will interactively tackle a practical case study, calculating emissions of a product's journey from raw material to final distribution. You will gather relevant data to quantify emissions for each leg, applying appropriate methodologies for different modes of transport. This practical experience will enhance your ability to critically assess supply chain emission calculations, classify varying data quality, and evaluate various carbon accounting approaches. Conclude your journey with a discussion with global policy experts on regulatory trends and the future of carbon accounting.
