WHAT is this all about?

You already know about greenhouse gases (GHG) and their impact on the earth’s climate, and that New York State’s new Climate Law (CLCPA) will regulate carbon emissions. But what are the next steps? This workshop will help your company get started on your journey towards a GHG analysis. Join our workshop to get a better understanding of:

What are today’s best practices for calculating GHG emissions?

What emission sources should be included in a GHG inventory?

What publicly available tools are available for your company to use for generating and interpreting useful GHG data?

What part of your GHG analysis is key to communicate to external stakeholders?

What examples are out there that we can learn from?
