Earth Council Geneva - ECG-Geneva has been the world’s largest online learning center for sustainable development. Since 2002, it has been the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat’s platform for the training of international experts, tasked with reviewing the national GHG inventories of member states. ECG partners with the UN, governments, universities, and other NGOs to offer courses on global trade, biodiversity, and sustainability.

The GHG Management Institute works in partnership with the GHG Experts Network and ClimateCHECK. We are also very proud to be working with the world’s best experts on GHG management. The GHG Management Institute provides two options for taking courses. First, individual learners can enroll in any of the open courses. Second, if you are a participant in a program with one of our partner organizations, you can login directly to the relevant program and choose the courses applicable to you.

All courses are provided through the Internet. Packages will be offered for particular audiences, such as corporate environmental and sustainability managers, sector-specific environmental management consultants, and NGO program managers. Overview courses will also be offered, targeting managers who need to have a clear overall perspective of the emerging landscape for GHG management.

Courses vary, but some of the key concepts included can be:

  • Accounting principles
  • Defining applications for inventory
  • Design and development of GHG inventories,
  • Establishing GHG boundaries for your organization,
  • Identifying emission sources,
  • Establishing base year,
  • GHG targets,
  • GHG quantification procedures,
  • Reporting standards and options
  • Inventory quality management, and
  • Preparing for verification.

      Many companies and other organizations are taking action to manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are a cause of climate change. Starting with an inventory of their sources and emissions (e.g. carbon footprint) is a good basis to design a management system for controlling and reducing emissions in the best way possible.

    • Setting Up a GHG Information System for Corporations and Organizations

      Many companies are taking action to manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are a cause of climate change. Establishing a GHG accounting data and quality management systems is a good basis for controlling and reducing emissions in the best way possible.

      Many companies are doing special projects or developing new technologies to reduce or avoid greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that cause climate change. These GHG projects are a way to reduce the overall emissions of a company or to create tradable credits that other companies can buy to offset emissions in order to become carbon neutral.
