Case StudiesDevelopment of a Carbon Accounting Strategy (0003) Carbon Accounting and Management Training (0061a)
Greenhouse gas (GHG) or carbon accounting is a process of developing an inventory of emissions, for a specified activity or organisation. There is an increasing range of standards and protocols for carbon accounting, and CRA can help organisations understand the practicalities and benefits of applying them.
What is the benefit?
There is a growing range of standards and protocols for developing GHG inventories and public reporting, including the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (a globally recognised accounting programme), the Carbon Disclosure Project, the UK’s new mandatory reporting initiative for listed companies, voluntary UK guidelines, and a range of international standards.
Increasingly, there is an expectation that organisations will report on not only their direct emissions but also their indirect supply chain emissions. There is also a plethora of sector reporting requirements and emissions reduction initiatives. In order to meet these growing expectations, organisations need to build internal competence and understanding of the practical requirements of these initiatives.
CRA has considerable experience of working with organisations at all levels, to support them in producing reliable reports and inventories of emissions. We work with clients to:
- Develop corporate climate change strategies;
- Benchmark performance against expectations and competitors;
- Select appropriate GHG accounting, verification and reporting standards;
- Develop accounting processes, including IT-based systems;
- Train staff in using carbon accounting processes to produce reliable inventories; and
- Develop and apply inventory quality control processes.
CRA offers a 2-day Carbon (GHG) Accounting and Management training course, approved by the IEMA.
