A workforce needs-assessment survey carried out by the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute concluded US organizations are ill-prepared for emerging regulatory emissions reporting, carbon markets are not “up-to-snuff”, and competency concerns loom with expansion of climate programs. A set of recent reports in Nature confirmed that new international agreements will tax the capabilities of nations and organizations to carry out the supporting accounting activities.
The Graduate Certificate in Carbon Management is designed to deliver the latest fundamental knowledge and skills to practicing environmental/sustainability professionals, enabling them to advance their careers by expanding into this emerging area.
The certificate may be completed through traditional, on-campus coursework or through CSU Online.
