GHG Management webinar

10th September 2013

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.
