In this Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) attendees will learn how to perform an effective greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory (“carbon footprint”) per global and US standards.

Why Should You Attend:

Climate change, energy conservation, and sustainability are major issues to business these days. Savvy businesses recognize that these are more than environmental concern; they actually represent core business concerns. Many firms are also learning the many business benefits of having a robust program, whether it be called a “green”, energy conservation, or climate change program, such as reduced energy costs, potential revenue from carbon credits, satisfying customers (most importantly, Walmart), and others. In addition, Congress has wrestled with ”Climate” legislation and will likely promulgate some GHG emission reduction rule in the future. In the meantime, a number of states and regions are passing such rules.

This presentation will cover the US- and internationally-accepted techniques to perform a baseline GHG emissions inventory or carbon footprint, including what data to collect, how to do so, how to perform the calculations, roles and responsibilities, and what to do with your baseline inventory when complete. They will learn the many financial benefits of such an effort. Attendees will learn how to set up the inventory, what types of data are commonly found in the plants and other records needed, and how GHG emissions are calculated.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Introduction/benefits of a “green” program.
  • How to organize an internal group.
  • Roles and responsibilities of key personnel.
  • How to determine early on potential barriers.
  • How to define your “boundary”.
  • What data is needed to be collected.
  • How best to collect high quality facility data.
  • Data management.
  • Calculating GHG emissions.
  • Treating, understanding GHG emissions data.
  • What the data reveals concerning cost-effective GHG emission reduction strategies.
  • What to do after the baseline inventory is complete.

Who Will Benefit:

The following individuals or disciplines will benefit from attending this Webinar:

  • Senior executives of all types of firms (not just “smokestack” manufacturers)
  • Vice Presidents, Directors and Managers of operations, financing, legal, engineering, production, marketing departments
  • Quality engineers and field auditors
  • Quality System Auditors
