Singapore has announced carbon taxes for 2019 on facilities that emit greenhouse gases. Under the Carbon Pricing Act (CPA), registered corporations must now submit annual Emissions Reports, capturing information on corporation facilities’ activity data and computation. This course provides an understanding and practical guidance on the processes for compiling and monitoring greenhouse gas information for carbon footprint quantification. Students will be guided on the details of assessing facility carbon footprint and delivering well-structured and complete carbon footprint reports in accordance with international standards. This course is suitable for anyone involved in carbon footprint quantification and communication: carbon and environmental consultants, supply chain managers, ESG leaders, and business professionals of companies who are seeking to build a foundation in carbon footprint measurement.This course is a collaborative effort with Deloitte & Touche Enterprise Risk Service Pte Ltd.
