CO2 Reduction Projects
with certification


Learn how to contribute to CO2 reduction and sustainability through your projects

Introduction to CO2 Reduction Projects

More than 30% of the western economy is tied up in projects. In other words, we can make a big difference by incorporating CO2 reduction into our projects.

Accordingly, we have further developed our project approaches on sustainability, emissions reduction, and agile project management into our hands-on course on CO2 Reduction Projects with certification.

You will learn how to operationally execute sustainability projects with a dedicated focus on emissions reduction, in respect to both Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction and compensation, and on how to adapt the method from project to project. The approach is designed for both teams that are geographically distributed and/or work at the same location.

Teaching method
The course is conducted by using blended learning. Before the course starts, we encourage the participants to watch educational videos. They relate to the agile part of the project approach and take you from start to finish in the project. The video preparation enables us to spend the course hours more effectively, and focus on practical case exercises, relating to actual daily work, and finally on reflection. This teaching method increases learning significantly compared to traditional courses.

All classes can be done online, so it is up to you whether you wish to participate in person or online. We use top-of-the-line conference equipment to ensure our online participants an optimal experience. Texts are in English, and the speaking is in Danish. Please notify us in case you would like to do the course in English.
