This Sustainability Skills Workshop is the first in a two part series on Greenhouse Gas Accounting, and focuses on establishing a baseline Carbon Emissions Inventory. Students completing both parts in the series will receive a certificate of completion in Greenhouse Gas Accounting.
This workshop will begin with an introduction to the international standard for Greenhouse Gas Accounting – The Greenhouse Gas Protocol – and its principles and requirements. We will then walk through assessing and calculating a baseline of carbon emissions for an orgainzation or a household, that will include understanding the 3 scopes of carbon, setting organizational and operational boundaries, converting the Kyoto 6 greenhouse gases to carbon dioxide equivalents and more.
Please arrive on time so we can get started and underway promptly.
Please bring a calculator, information about your annual personal vehicle use (milesage driven, or gasoline purchased if you have it) and a copy of your latest utliity bill.
This workshop is open to enrolled CU Boulder STUDENTS ONLY. Enrollment is limited.
