Climate change policy and programs are developing quickly in jurisdictions around the world. A large focus of this activity is to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with discrete projects. GHG projects that are quantified, monitored and reported using recognized standards, such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard, ISO 14064-2, may result in a commoditized “credit” that is traded in regulatory and voluntary schemes.

This course covers the principles and process of preparing a GHG project. Participants will become very familiar with ISO 14064-2 and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and World Resources Institute’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol for Project Accounting.

Anyone intending to develop or manage GHG projects will benefit from the information and interactive exercises in this course.  People intending to become a GHG verifier will also benefit from this course (additional courses specifically focused on GHG verification are available).


Through a series of modules containing instructor presentations and interactive activities and case studies, participants will learn GHG project accounting principles, establishing a baseline and project scenario to compare GHG emissions, quantification of GHG project emissions, requirements for GHG project reporting, and preparing for verification.


By the end of the course, students should be able to:

  • develop a GHG project plan
  • quantify GHG project emissions design a GHG project quality management process
  • prepare documentation necessary to report an emission reduction achieved from a GHG project
  • distinguish between the most well-known offset registries in North America
