Curious about the carbon footprinting regulations and how it impacts your business?

Imagine peering into the heart of a company’s environmental practices, just as you would dissect its financial statements to see how you can make significant changes in carbon, energy and water use? At the Sustainability Institute in South Africa, we offer you the course to do so.

Why Carbon Footprinting matters

While many of South Africa’s top 100 companies already calculate their carbon footprints, many other businesses and organisations will be called to do the same so that the impacts can be reduced. This is your opportunity to upskill and act with confidence as you navigate the complexities of the carbon markets and analysis.

3. Beyond carbon: Sustainability isn’t a one-dimensional journey. Everything is interconnected and there are other environmental footprints, like energy and water usage that shapes a company’s overall impact.

4. Legislation and disclosure: Be the informed professional your organisation needs in order to ready for the legislated domestic disclosures and the gazetted domestic carbon tax.

5. Avoid unnecessary risks: Given that carbon footprinting is a new and evolving science, it requires an open and considered approach. We’ll share perspectives on the pitfalls of the carbon industry and how these can be avoided.

6. Certificate and CPD points: On completion of the course you will receive a CPD Certificate of Attendance from the Sustainability Institute. You will be able to upload this certificate to the SACNASP website to be awarded 3 CPD points
