Accounting for Carbon 2024

Description

An introduction to carbon accounting for finance professionals

This introductory-level webinar is your starting point for your journey into carbon accounting (‘greenhouse gas inventories’), with a focus on application by finance professionals. Experts from Toitū Envirocare will share foundational knowledge on the key principles of greenhouse gas inventories, and international best practice requirements and standards. The webinar is designed to provide theoretical background alongside real-world examples. We will be exploring how finance accounting directly influences full value chain carbon assessment (‘Scope 3’), calculation methods and their associated level of precision and uncertainty, and key differences and similarities between financial and greenhouse gas accountancy.

This training is suited to accountants and finance professionals in organisations of all sizes. It will be most beneficial for participants who will be, or are already, involved in developing or reporting their own organisation’s greenhouse gas inventory, or their clients’ inventories.

Overall, this introductory session will cover the main aspects that accountants should be aware of when it comes to carbon accounting. The webinar will equip you with foundational knowledge and understanding to help you begin to navigate the carbon accounting landscape. From here, you will be ready to take the next steps in carbon accounting – additional training and practical guidance will be necessary before you are ready to compile a fully compliant greenhouse gas inventory.
