A career in GHG management

Date: 21/03/2010 in Opinion

In these economically distressed times – which could last for a number of years – we need to be alert to emerging trends and to where we should focus our personal development goals?  For those of you trying to figure out what discipline will really be important in the next few years, may I recommend a few classes in carbon accounting – every business will need to account for its carbon performance in the coming years – it is a real way to contribute to society and to create a real and productive career and to help society survive and thrive.  Becoming a carbon professional is like becoming a doctor during the time of the plague – you are a new science specialist with a real contribution to make to modern life.

Many of us have found ourselves, several times over the last two years wishing we had a carbon accountant at our disposal. This was a universal thought. It didn't matter if we were at a chip maker, in financial services, government departments, local government or the oil and gas business or a software maker or big or small Pharma, or even the Soup Company or local florist or dentist.

But we need to know we are getting the right - and the internationally recognized training in carbon management.  Well we need to be sure that our training is in an area fully recognized all over the world – thus it has to be training in the International Standards Organisation (ISO) Green House Gas (GHG) systems - ISO 14064.

On behalf of the ISO, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) have lead the development of ISO 14064 – a series of international standards dealing with carbon quantification, GHG reduction projects and verification / validation of GHG claims made by businesses.

Our ISO/CSA14064 training provides substantial and robust GHG training which equips our delegates with the tools needed to deal with GHG issues.  Our students come from DEFRA, Carbon Trust, DECC, international energy firms, International Banking and Investment houses and engineering, energy, environmental and engineering consultancies.
