Program Overview

The international community unanimously agrees that there is no doubt about the urgency of the climate crisis. Climate change is increasingly affecting government and private sector organizations. To be resilient in the face of this reality, organizations must plan and implement decarbonization plans to help them contribute to the fight against climate change, mitigate its effects on their activities, and take advantage of growth and sustainable development opportunities. Decarbonization planning involves setting greenhouse gas (GHG) emission mitigation targets and carbon neutrality objectives. The first step in organizational planning is quantifying GHG emissions (carbon footprint).

This course guides participants through the process of designing and developing GHG emission inventories based on international standards. It is focused on best practices to account for Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions using an applied and dynamic approach.  

  • Day one covers the essential steps for preparing GHG inventories. 
  • Day two is focused on quality management, reporting, and verification requirements. 


This training includes quizzes, case studies, and simulation exercises to help participants apply the course content. It also provides the knowledge needed to design and develop a GHG emission inventory to enable the establishment of mitigation or carbon neutrality targets for organizations. 


In this course, you will learn to

  • Discern the requirements and approaches for quantifying GHG emissions. 
  • Apply the steps to design and develop Scope 1 and 2 GHG inventories. 
  • Interpret the results of GHG inventories and extract results based on performance indicators. 
  • Define GHG emission reduction targets for specific organizations. 
  • Ensure the quality of GHG inventories in accordance with applicable requirements. 


This course is ideal for

  • Sustainability, environment, or decarbonization managers 
  • Planning or strategy managers 
  • Energy managers 
  • Accountants 
  • Consultants 
  • Operational efficiency specialists
