Event Details

For a variety of reasons, many companies are starting to voluntarily track their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to establish their carbon footprint.  However, most of these companies struggle with determining what emissions should be included in the GHG inventory and how to determine their GHG emissions in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalence.  This workshop will help clear up the confusions and uncertainties concerning the establishment of a carbon footprint and provide the structure and traits of a well-established voluntary GHG accounting program.


Workshop qualifies for 0.4 CEUs (continuing education units) through Purdue University. If you are interested in obtaining CEUs, you will need to fill out an application form at the end of the session. Workshop also qualifies for 8 PDHs (professional development hours) through the Indiana State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers. You will be given a Certificate of Attendance to submit to the Board for these credits.
