This course provides comprehensive and detailed guidance on how to account for forest-related GHG emissions and removals when preparing an organizational GHG inventory.
Many organizations are taking steps to better understand, manage, and track their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and several internationally acclaimed resources are available to specifically assist organizations with the essential step of preparing a GHG inventory. The important role for forests in GHG emissions management is widely recognized, but there are fewer resources to help organizations account for forest-related GHG emissions and removals in their GHG emission inventories. This course fills this need by providing comprehensive and detailed guidance on developing forest GHG inventories, which will help your organization:

To remain consistent with widely approved international standards, the course draws on the terminology and structure of WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol Corporate Standard.
The course includes quizzes and exercises to help you learn to apply key lessons. A Certificate of Proficiency is available and requires the passing of an exam for an additional fee.
