Introduction to
ESG and Carbon Footprint Management


Investors, consumers, and employees are demanding that companies make positive ESG (environmental, social, and governance) impacts and the game has changed. Positively contributing to society and the environment is now a “must have.”


As leaders driving the sustainability vision in the company, leaders need to be able to influence various stakeholders and chart the journey that everyone need to take.


This course will facilitate insights on how such can be taken.

In this 3-days course, you will explore risk and opportunities, key tools and processes in stakeholder engagement, materiality assessment and development of a ESG strategy.


As carbon footprint is one of the key environmental metrics, you will delve into the emerging carbon services, which include the calculation of carbon footprints, concepts in carbon sequestration, and application of carbon footprint management through carbon offset and carbon tax.

Though hands-on exercises, you will learn to identify and compute Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions using the GHG protocol and various emission factors. 


You will also gain knowledge on how to leverage science-based target to set GHG reduction targets for reporting.


You will have the opportunity to take an inventory of your organisation’s current carbon footprint, and then identify and prioritise opportunities for reducing it.


You will also learn how to provide climate-related disclosure based on the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) – a requirement by Singapore Exchange.


The global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as Sustainability Accounting Standards Board and various other frameworks will also be discussed as alternatives for ESG disclosure and reporting.


As part of the course, you will also get to analyse various live MNC reports.
