Carbon Footprint Management Training

Master Carbon Footprint Management for your sustainability journey

Our planet faces a critical challenge: climate change. Businesses play a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building a sustainable future. Carbon footprinting is a powerful tool to measure your environmental impact and guide your sustainability efforts.

Our Carbon Footprint Management (CFM) training course equips you with the knowledge and skills to become a leader in corporate sustainability. Gain a competitive edge and demonstrate your commitment to environmental responsibility through effective carbon footprint management.

This programme is designed for professionals working in organisations linked with Agriculture, Forestry or Other Land Use (AFOLU) and travel sector, who want to contribute to their organisation’s sustainability goals. Whether you’re a business leader setting the sustainability vision, a sustainability officer driving implementations or quality and sustainability staff involved in data collection, this training empowers you to make a difference.

The training is based on our Carbon Footprint Management Standard and certification system. The Standard can be used to benchmark your CFM performance or to prepare for third-party certification.
