Want to be a key player in transitioning your organisation to the low carbon economy? This course is ideally suited to business managers, financial managers, business-intelligent analysts and data scientists interested in remaining competitive in a low carbon economy.

This course will equip you with the knowledge and essential skills to manage the risks and opportunities of transitioning to the low carbon economy. Adopting the role of a key employee in a fictitious company, you will learn about different policy responses to climate change, how to measure your organisation’s carbon footprint, how to compare projects based on emissions reduction and cost, and how to participate in an emissions trading scheme.

This interactive course incorporates videos, expert insights, real-world case studies, skills-based practical exercises and scenario-based problem solving to teach you the essential policy and mathematical concepts that organisations are looking for in order to manage their emissions, select financially viable projects, and meet their potential compliance obligations into the future.

Taught by

Assoc. Prof. Paul Dargusch, Dr. Adrian Ward, Simone Elias and Professor Karen Hussey

by Dr completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
This course was really designed for business people rather than scientists. It does provide very useful tools for deciding which options one might utilise to produce a meaningful and achievable low carbon organisation or government department. Unfortunately politics will likely get in the way of a carbon-neutral global economy. The exercises are interesting and helpful. Worth doing!
