Arlington, VA (March 17, 2010) – A growing number of regulatory and competitive drivers are propelling companies around the world toward the development of their own carbon management objectives and programs. These include impending climate change regulations, supply chain mandates, and an increasing commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Yet cost and complexity are always primary factors in decisions about how and when to begin a formal carbon management program, the components of a successful program, and how to plan a long-term strategy.

Developing a Business Case for Carbon Management, is intended for individuals and organizations with the responsibility for implementing carbon management programs and their advisers.

Participants will learn the most cost-effective, proven strategies for implementing a formal program, which begins with gaining a full understanding of an organization’s greenhouse gas (GHG) baseline; learning how to analyze the options available for reducing scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions; and understanding – and communicating – the financial commitments and opportunities for significant savings associated with carbon management. The curriculum includes:

  • Developing a high quality GHG inventory
  • Understanding and managing supply chain emissions
  • Evaluating viability of GHG reduction options
  • Developing a financially optimized and prioritized menu of GHG reduction measures and projects
  • Measuring progress and participating in public reporting programs

In this practical training, AEA Group’s Knowledge Leader for Carbon Management Daniel Waller, along with Climate, Energy and Environmental Practice Principal Dimitri Shanin, will provide an overview of AEA’s industry-leading approach to GHG inventory development, project financial analysis, and prioritization using Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) analysis, as well as the design, development, and implementation of financially viable programs.
