Overview

This talk is designed to help the audience understand how greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories can play a key role in the development and advancement of their company's national GHG inventory management system. While the establishment of a system to compile and improve the national GHG inventory may seem difficult and complex; this talk will make the process easier and clearer, by showing viewers how to maximise the use of supporting resources. The presenter will also be illustrating the importance of GHG inventories through case studies and strategies done for companies of various scales and sectors.
