The Certificate in Greenhouse Gas Management is designed to prepare students professionally to contribute to the coming low carbon future. The George Washington University partnered with the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute to create this customized graduate program, which consists of four online courses: Climate Change: Policy, Impacts, and Response; Greenhouse Gas Measurement and Reporting; Greenhouse Gas Mitigation: Projects and Markets; and Greenhouse Gas Management Assurance and Information Systems Design.

The program is designed for aspiring and existing environmental and energy managers and other professionals in industrial, business, or government organizations. It will provide the policy and technical knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to understand and act on the GHG implications of energy management decisions to improve environmental performance and create new business opportunities. Graduates of the program will be able to measure, analyze, and report emissions related to energy use and to apply cost-effective energy management principles that reduce GHG emissions.
