Transform your business into a climate leader.
Climate Smart certification is a three-step process. And it’s rigorous (but fun, we swear!). We guide you through three very important stages to help you cut carbon and cut costs.
Session 1: How to measure your current impact
Because metrics matter.
- GHG 101—you’ll learn the basics about greenhouse gas emissions
- Calculate a baseline—What is your carbon footprint right now?
- Map your emissions—Where are they coming from?
- Learn how to collect and analyse data
- Input your findings into our emissions calculation software
- Practice the Greenhouse Gas Protocol—the international standard for carbon accounting
Session 2: Make an emissions reduction plan
Cutting carbon is your ticket to cutting costs.
- Identify your best opportunities to reduce emissions and costs (We’ll help you with ideas!)
- Build your own emissions reduction strategy
- Forecast perceived benefits
- Make an action plan to make change happen
Session 3: Communicate and celebrate
Sing it from the rooftops.
- Inspire your team to actively participate in your emissions reduction plan
- Learn how to become carbon neutral (if that’s one of your goals)
- Leverage your Climate Smart Certification in your internal and external marketing efforts
- Become a climate leader in your industry
Calculating your carbon progress is easy—and spot on
All training program participants use a little something we call “The Tool”. (It’s way more innovative than its name. Promise.) It’s a top-rated web-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) carbon calculator that does all the backend work—like updating emission factors and calculating costs, too. Just input your organization’s data and get the most up-to-date carbon management information in real-time.
