Climate change is the current crisis the world is experiencing today. Climate change impacts have been manifested in the Philippines by extreme weather occurrence such as floods, droughts, forest fires, and an increase in tropical cyclones. 70 % of country’s communities are located in coastal areas thus it is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Philippines being one of the earliest countries to recognize the importance of a systematic institutional response to the problem of climate change are taking enormous measures to reduce the GHG emissions causing the climate change. The Carbon Footprint (expressed in units of carbon dioxide, CO2) is a term used to describe the amount of GHG emissions caused by a particular activity or entity by an organization thus creating a quantitative method of assessing their contribution in climate change.
This 1-day awareness training on carbon footprint is a widely recognized methodology for accounting greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change. The term ‘carbon footprint’ is commonly used but in many cases misunderstood but this course clearly explains the key principles of the methodology based on the principles of PAS 2050. The course is highly interactive and suitable for those addressing sustainability at a strategic level. During the workshop sessions, participants can calculate a footprint using a case study.
