Greenhouse gas emissions are at the heart of an increasing number of regulations, policies, programs and standards that impact all sectors of the economy. They all come with a set of obligations and requirements, and they create economic and operational risks for many organisations, but also some quite lucrative opportunities for others.
This full-day course presents the most important policies and regulations aiming at the overall reductions of GHG emissions and how they might drive investments in green technologies and energy efficiency measures. CCG will specifically focus on detailing the different regulations at the provincial and the federal level and their difference and similarities with other mechanisms around the world. We will explain the Cap-and-Trade Program and why companies can no longer afford not to have a plan for managing their carbon emissions and its implications. Finally, we will provide business examples and insights about how to make carbon management a key success factor for small to large organizations while providing benefits to the society and the environment.
