Carbon Action delivers Carbon Emissions training courses in Singapore

Carbon Action and Sustinere partner up to deliver high quality training courses in Singapore.   Fergal Mee of Carbon Action recently delivered well attended Carbon Emissions ISO training courses to companies and governental agency personnel in Singapore. Another cycle of training courses will be delivered later this year and early 2019.

Carbon taxes are most definitely one topic on the minds of the Singapore Government and any other large-based facility this year. In February 2018, the Singapore Government announced that from the year 2020, six greenhouse gases will be taxable. This tax applies to all organisations, companies and any other facility producing 25,000 tonnes or more of greenhouse gas emissions in a year. The six greenhouse gases that will be covered under the carbon tax include: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).

The first step for any company, organisation or facility that is producing the set amount of 25,000 tonnes of carbon emissions or more in year will include the preparation and completion of a monitoring plan on their overall carbon emissions. From there, these reports will have to be verified by independent 3rd parties.

The internationally recognised standards used for carbon emissions reporting and verification are ISO 14064-1 and ISO 14064-3. When companies or any other facility want to create a mandatory or, of course, voluntary report on their carbon emissions they can make use of the frameworks and principles from these standards. Some examples of these facilities include any of those impacted by the Carbon Pricing Bill in Singapore, the maritime sector (under the European Union (EU) shipping Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) Regulation) and the aviation industry (under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation – CORSIA).

The ISO 14064 course will provide you those facilities that are preparing Sustainability Reports a greater understanding on how the Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 Emissions of an organisation should be reported. It also incorporates a more in-depth insight into the type of information the organisation should have prepared when emissions related data sets are being verified.
