Carbon management is fast becoming a key issue for any industry using vast amounts of energy. This qualification is complementary to many industry jobs, particularly, but not exclusively, within manufacturing, processing, transport, and engineering. Anyone part of an organisational shift towards better carbon management would find this qualification a useful introduction. Understanding the drivers and benefits of managing carbon output will raise awareness of the 'green agenda'. The knowledge to reduce your own and organisational carbon usage will enable learners to reduce energy bills while sustaining a cleaner environment for future generations to enjoy.
