[Webinar] Introduction to GHG Emissions


This is Module 5 of the Sustainability Excellence for Talent Certification Programme (SET), which aims to provide learners with comprehensive knowledge on topics such as sustainability reporting frameworks, ESG ratings, climate risks, and net zero.

Hence understanding GHG emissions allows companies to identify their largest emission sources and to implement strategies in reducing their carbon footprint.
