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.

  1. Measure
  2. Reduce
  3. Leverage

Session 1: How to measure your current impact

Calculating emissions

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 2/3: 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 4: Communicate and celebrate

Team celebrating cost savings and emisssions reductions

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

The Tool

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 we’ve developed 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.
