If you need to learn the essentials of corporate greenhouse gas accounting, the Corporate Standard Training Webinar is a great place to start. This instructor-led online course covers all the essential requirements of the Corporate Standard, the most widely used standard for companies and organizations to measure and manage their GHG emissions. The Scope 2 Guidance Training Webinar provides additional instruction on accounting from emissions from purchased energy.

If you are already up to speed on the Corporate Standard, you can continue developing your skills with the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) online course. Learn how to identify and categorize emissions from throughout the value chain, set scope 3 reduction targets, and report performance to stakeholders. We also offer an online course for the Product Life Cycle Standard, which is an excellent tool for developing sustainable products.

The GHG Protocol offers two online courses for policymakers and analysts at either the national or local level. The Mitigation Goal Standard course explains how to set greenhouse gas reduction goals and account for their progress over time. The Policy and Action Standard course explains how to estimate the greenhouse gas impact of policies and actions in order to inform policy design and improve their effectiveness in reducing emissions.

WRI and the World Bank have collaborated to provide another course for policymakers and practitioners interested in measuring, reporting and verifying (MRV) emissions from entities. The course Designing MRV Systems for Entity-Level Greenhouse Gas Emissions is based on the Guide for Designing Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Programs, and describes how to develop GHG reporting programs to collect emissions data from entities.

All GHG Protocol students may receive a certificate of completion.
