GHG Management webinar
Continuing IEMA’s new series of webinars covering Environmental Management topics, today’s webinar will be looking at the management and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With climate change being a key environmental impact for many organisations, and the increasing number of organisations required to report on their GHG emissions, this is an area of work which will continue to be part of many members’ roles.
This webinar will provide an overview of the policy context around GHG management and reporting and provide members with guidance on some key areas for attention when managing and reporting an organisations GHG emission’s, including some of the common areas where problems can arise and how to avoid these. There will also be time during the webinar for questions on the topics covered.

This webinar is primarily pitched for those at the Operational and Entry levels of the IEMA Skills Map; however those at higher levels who are looking to refresh their knowledge in this area will also benefit.
Further Guidance and Resources
IEMA produced a webinar entitled 'Preparing for Mandatory Carbon Reporting' earlier in the year that focussed on Mandatory GHG reporting.
Hosted during week 2 of COP26, this panel discussion focused on how to build a business case around taking action on climate change.
The Low Carbon Construction event hosted by the Yorkshire and Humberside regional network, looked into how building back better presents an opportunity to do things differently. In particular, it provides an opportunity to address some of the challenges presented by the decarbonisation agenda.
This webinar provided a unique first-hand briefing on this important development in the build up to COP26 and outlined progress and proposals developing through the Taskforce, along with practice informed perspectives on the potential of carbon markets both globally and for organisations.
In this webinar, we learned about the outcomes of this review, considerations identified across carbon offset and ‘compensation’ solutions, and implications of the findings for those developing their carbon offsetting programmes. The webinar focused on the context of the Environment Agency.
Now that it's been almost two years since the flurry of climate emergency declarations were made by multiple organisations across our region and as COP26 approaches, we took a look at the challenges and the opportunities that have been encountered by public sector organisations in leading climate emergency response at local level.
The second day of online delivery of Scotland’s EIA Conference saw three experienced presenters discuss their views on EIA’s progress in different aspects of climate change and nature enhancement goals.
