- Who We Train
Our learners come from all backgrounds and from almost every country in the world. Whether you simply want to understand how carbon markets work or you want to become a leading expert on greenhouse gas verification, carbon management or how to be a climate change officer, we have a training program to fit your needs.
Individuals at the following types of organizations are trained by the Institute:
- Verification organizations and designated operational entities
- Investment firms
- Law firms
- Engineering companies
- Real estate and infrastructure companies
- All levels of governments

- Consulting firms
We provide dedicated training for or to the following organizations:
- The World Resources Institute in support of the GHG Protocol Initiative – WRI is a partner with the Institute and jointly developed our course on Organizational GHG accounting.
- The Carbon Disclosure Project - CDP is a partner with the Institute and jointly developed the course for training reporters on how to complete the annual CDP questionnaire.
- Thomson Reuters Point Carbon - Point Carbon is a partner with the Institute and jointly developed our course on carbon markets.
- The World Bank - We developed a course on the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI) program with the World Bank Institute.
- The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) – We created the mandatory training program for offset verifiers under RGGI, as well as the design for their verifier accreditation system.
- The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – We created a training program for the Joint Implementation (JI) programme’s accreditation panel members.
- UNFCCC Consultative Group of Experts on Non-Annex I National Communications – We are providing a comprehensive training program for the UNFCCC secretariat through a series of regional workshops in developing countries on the preparation of national GHG emission inventories, covering all IPCC sectors.
- The Kyoto Protocol compliance process – We support the UNFCCC secretariat in the training and testing (including by hosting the program on learning management system) for the experts who review the information contained in national greenhouse gas inventories. Our staff had a leading role in developing most of the courses that compose this program. This review process is the backbone of the Kyoto Protocol compliance process.
- Harvard University Extension School – We instructed a course on GHG Management for the Graduate Program in Sustainability and Environmental Management (Environmental Studies E-157) titled “Investing in a Sustainable Future” for the Fall of 2009-2010.
- Accenture Supply Chain Academy – We developed three courses for the Academy, one introduction to climate change science, policy, and business issues; a second one on corporate GHG emission inventories and management; and a third on climate risk disclosure. The courses are delivered under Accenture’s sustainability practice.
- International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) Summer School – We instructed sessions on monitoring, reporting, and verification at the International Carbon Action Partnership’s inaugural summer school in Berlin, aimed at increasing technical capacity of experts from developing and emerging economies on emission trading.
- Regional Environmental Center Turkey (REC Turkey) – We worked with REC Turkey to translate a number of our GHG accounting courses into Turkish to be offered to Turkish companies and organizations.
- NCSI Australia – We offer a “blended” version (i.e., online instruction complemented by in-person workshops) of our Basics of Organizational GHG Accounting course in Australia in collaboration with in-country partner NCSI Australia.
- International Air Transport Association (IATA) – IATA offers a bundled blended learning program using online learning from the Institute coupled with their own in-class courses.
- The Climate Registry – We co-developed The Climate Registry module of the Basics of Organizational GHG Accounting and offer a combined certificate program with The Climate Registry.
- CEnergy Project – The USAID Philippine Climate Change and Clean Energy (CEnergy) Project’s goal is to mitigate climate change through the improved utilization of clean and renewable energy in power and transport. GHGMI is working with and training the Philippine’s National Climate Change Commission and other national and local government agencies, academic institutions and other related bodies to develop and implement a national mitigation plan for achieving their GHG emission reduction targets in accordance with the Second National Communication on Climate Change, as well as, developing programs and activities that help reduce vehicle emissions to improve air quality.
- USAID Forest Carbon, Markets and Communities (FCMC) project – We are supporting this global capacity building initiative focused on the measurement, reporting, and verification for forest and other land-based GHG activities. The overall goal of the project is to strengthen USAID and its missions’ role in international processes and implementation of REDD+ activities.
- USEPA/USAID Capacity Building for National GHG Inventory Systems in Developing Countries – We are supporting U.S. government efforts to develop the capacity of non-Annex I Parties for reporting their GHG emissions under the UNFCCC using IPCC methodologies.
- USAID Low Emissions Asian Development (LEAD) – The LEAD program aims to help governments prepare national greenhouse gas inventories and expand carbon market investment in Asia by working with the private sector to prepare corporate inventories and participate in these markets. GHGMI, in partnership with the Asian Institute of Technology, is developing a regional Training Facility with the ultimate objective of building a cadre of local experts for carbon accounting services.
