This unit seeks to identify a workplace’s impact on global climate change through its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), notably carbon dioxide (CO₂), the most common such gas. It will then provide some guidance on how best to reduce that footprint, looking in turn at behavioural and management issues, relatively straightforward physical measures and transport.
