Description of the Course

Climate change today is already a reality. However, you can mitigate and fight against it. Therefore, organizations already have an economic and ethical obligation to contribute to the mitigation and compensation of CO2 emissions.

Since the EU has put the new Corporate Social Responsibility directive into effect, large companies are already required by law to report their non-financial impact. This will further produce changes and needs in the value chain. In this way more companies have to start raising awareness about the issue and have to acquire knowledge and skills to survive in this new economy.

The course is designed to transmit the knowledge, tools and skills necessary to face this change and to prepare the organization for climate change.


Objectives and Results

The Objectives of the course create knowledge about climate change, the impact of organizations and how to contribute to their mitigation. In this way you will learn how to integrate the carbon footprint in the management of the organization. That is why the course deals with different reduction strategies. This will learn how to systematize the carbon footprint analysis to design efficient and effective reduction strategies. To complete, the compensation strategies are also discussed and the main emission compensation instruments will be learned.

As a first result the student will learn how to calculate the carbon footprint in organizations and throughout the entire life cycle of a product. Second, the student will have a good recognition of the main certificates in the market and how to apply them.

Then, as a new key capacity, the student learns to develop ad hoc EXCEL tools for carbon footprint calculations. In addition, you will know other existing tools.

As a result of all this work, the carbon footprint of the organization, product or staff will be carried out in the final project.
