Carbon Accounting for Cities and Communities

Carbon accounting

The Initiative for Carbon Accounting (ICARB) warmly invites you to our 2014 conference on Carbon Accounting for Cities and Communities on the Friday 5 September 2014 at the City Chambers, Edinburgh.

It will be the key opportunity to learn from, and network with, leaders in the field of carbon management and accounting for communities.
Join us to find out about the latest carbon accounting tools, what’s changed in the sector, and to meet community groups from across Scotland who are tackling the challenges of carbon accounting in their local areas.

Key speakers from across Europe, Scotland and the UK will speak and lead workshops to explore the latest challenges and solutions for the carbon accounting community:

  • Amanda Howarth-Wiklund, Director of the CDP Nordic: “The Carbon Disclosure Project: Progress and Challenges for Cities.”
  • Chang Deng-Beck, ICLEI World Secretariat:GPC 2.0 – the Global Protocol for Community-Scale GHG Emissions.”

  • Philip Scott, Heriot-Watt University: “Best Practice Carbon Accounting: Scotland and Continental Europe.”

The conference will bring together many of the people involved in carbon audits for buildings, micro-grids, communities, towns and cities – from experts to accounting novices. It will examine the approaches and methods being applied, where improvements can be made, and how to overcome barriers to more correct and relevant accounting.
