Carbon Management and Climate Action for Organisations

About the Course

Against the backdrop of a continuing global pandemic, 2021 has seen the highest number of net zero climate commitments by governments, regulators and businesses.

As of November 2021, more than 140 governments across every continent have put forward net zero goals, covering 90% of global emissions. More than 450 firms across 45 countries committed over $130 trillion of private capital towards a net-zero economy. There has been a threefold increase in the number of businesses that have set net-zero goals since the end of 2019. As of March 2021, at least one-fifth of the world’s 1,000 largest public companies, representing over US$ 14 trillion in revenue, have set net-zero targets. The likes of Microsoft, Apple, Ford, Blackrock and Temasek have all stepped up to take actions.

In 2020, Singapore also submitted its enhanced Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), announcing commitments to peak emissions by 2030 and halve absolute emissions by 2050. The Government has also set aside S$49 million for low-carbon research.

As the momentum grows, there is a mounting expectation on businesses to better manage their emissions and take progressive actions on climate change. With many frameworks, guidelines and regulations that are constantly evolving, managing GHG emissions for an organization, large or small, can be a complex and daunting task.

In this course, we will introduce climate change fundamentals and the global and local regulatory and industry landscapes of climate action and carbon management. Through clear, relevant examples and case studies, we will deep dive into various steps and strategies of carbon management in two independent modules.

Participants can attend either one or both modules.
