The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute and Sequence Staffing are pleased to announce the release of the 2010 Greenhouse Gas and Climate Change Workforce Needs Assessment Survey Report. This second report builds on the findings of 2009’s inaugural survey by more deeply examining the trends, requirements, and sentiment of the global practitioner corps that is undertaking work to measure and manage climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, the 2010 survey provides incisive international perspective on a range of issues facing GHG measurement and management. Findings touch on the following:

  • Policy implementation and capacity issues, with specific responses pertaining to: the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), the UK Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), Reduced Emissions through Deforestation and Degradation (REDD), the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission’s (SEC) interpretive guidance on climate risk disclosure, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Mandatory Reporting Rule (MRR), international climate negotiations, etc.
  • Workforce development questions related to hiring, training, and professionalization.
  • The state of GHG accounting, including challenges facing GHG auditing, peer and work product assessments, and the growing role of GHG software.

And much more, including a complete profile of the ~1,000 climate change professionals participating in the survey.
