The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute (the Institute) was founded in response to the current and future needs for qualified professionals to actively engage reversing the causes of climate change. Just as other key fields such as engineering and financial accounting rely on professionals, GHG emissions management requires a highly competent and ethical professional community to undertake measurement, reporting, verification, mitigation, and adaptation activities. The Institute develops technically rigorous GHG training curricula authored and instructed by leading experts and delivered globally via a "low carbon" e-learning portal combined with onsite workshops. The Institute has also prepared for the future where climate change is a central concern for society with the development of the world's first and only accredited personnel certification for GHG professionals.
Our mission is to build and support a global community of experts with the highest standards of professional practice in measuring, accounting for, auditing and managing GHG emissions. This effort is critical to ensuring that market mechanisms and policy responses to climate change are effective and credible, as well as a valuable source of new critical jobs.
The Institute is a nonprofit organization and recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax law with offices also in the Philippines, Canada, and Luxembourg.
