This one day workshop discusses the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) landscape and how to create a GHG inventory. We will answer those burning questions; What are GHGs and why does this affect me? What are global warming potentials and is Laughing gas really a serious GHG? What is the current regulatory framework (Federal and Washington State)? What is the voluntary market? Who has to report, where to report, and what to report? Cap and Trade or Carbon Tax, and what is the WCI? What is a GHG inventory and how to develop it? What are Scopes and how this avoids double counting? What does Carbon Neutrality really mean? What are Offsets, how they work and are they valid? What International Standards are applicable to GHGs? Verification and Validation is 3rd party assurance, but why add this expense to yearly reporting and is it required? What's an organizational boundary and geographic boundary when we're talking about GHGs? What are typical GHG sources?

There is a growing trend of corporations, governmental agencies and non-profit organizations issuing triple bottom line reports. Groups across the country and world are forming sustainability plans, and beginning to measure and manage sustainability performance as a means to demonstrate accountability. Accountability for environmental, social and economic impacts of a company is increasingly becoming a part of every manager or governmental official’s job. However, there is much uncertainty and inconsistency in the field.
