Our friends Seth Keller and Mark van Soestbergen have developed a great greenhouse gas accounting course here in Gainesville and they’re taking it to Atlanta next week. Please pass the word to anyone you think might be interested in learning about this:
Carbon Footprint and Greenhouse Strategies Seminar: August 26
Participants will learn how to measure GHG emissions
CarbonSolutions and International Carbon Bank Exchange will present “Organizational Greenhouse Gas Accounting” seminar in Atlanta, GA at Atlantic Station, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 26, 2010.
Organizational Greenhouse Gas Accounting focuses on training individuals to measure, manage and report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The course provides an overview of carbon markets, offsets, and the current state of climate policy, critical information for those tasked with GHG management. The training is essential for government officials, environmental managers, sustainability officers and consultants
The course will be led by President of International Carbon Bank Exchange, Mark van Soestbergen, a nationally recognized lecturer on climate change adaptation strategies and carbon footprint training. “By the end of this course attendees should have the skills necessary to create a GHG inventory, an understanding of GHG policy as well as regulations, and strategic implications of carbon in the business world,” said van Soestbergen.
Carbon Solutions associate Tony Mullersman will be co-instructor. Founded in 1998, Carbon Solutions was one of the first firms in North America to specialize in carbon accounting and management.
The seminar will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., August 26, 2010, in the Wachovia Building at Atlantic Station, 171 17th Street NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30363.
