EES 592 - Foundations In Greenhouse Gas Accounting II


Description: This course builds off the foundational concepts learned in EES 591 (Foundations in Greenhouse Gas Accounting I), and introduces you to more advanced skills and methods needed to produce credible emissions inventories. Best practices and requirements for GHG inventories are continuing to evolve as the science advances and as governments enact GHG mitigation policies. This course includes emerging and more advanced GHG accounting methods and approaches, special considerations for community or city-level inventories, and evolving reporting frameworks and requirements. Students will be introduced to current standards, frameworks, and reporting tools, as well as, how emission inventories can be used to set mitigation goals and targets for climate actions plans, as well as tracking progress over time. This course, together with EES 591, provides you the foundation to construct a GHG inventory for any type of corporation or organization. This is the second course in a series of four courses that satisfy the requirements for the Professional Certificate in Greenhouse Gas Accounting. Letter grade only.
