Syllabus

INTRODUCTION

Meet your peers and the course contributors from around the world and complete an introductory survey. We will also be introduced to the fictional country of ‘Tasland’, where local businesses and inhabitants alike are keeping a close eye on an upcoming government response to address climate change.

PART 1: The fundamentals of carbon and climate change policies

Learn about climate change and its implications for private and public sector organisations, and use an interactive map tool to explore climate change impacts under different warming scenarios. Investigate public policy approaches to climate change, the implications of these for organisations and understand what carbon action leadership involves.

PART 2: Climate policies worldwide

Use case studies to explore current climate mitigation, adaptation policies, and explore essential skills that organisations need to manage their emissions and potential compliance obligations into the future.

PART 3: Carbon footprinting (measure)

Tasland government announces its long-awaited climate policy choice! Peer into a Tasland boardroom discussing how their company will comply with government policy. Learn how to measure your organisation’s carbon footprint, and some common mistakes to avoid, in order to comply with the new policy.

PART 4: Carbon abatement (manage)

Examine financial appraisal of carbon abatement projects. How do we identify the cheapest ways to reduce our carbon footprint? Learn about Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) visualisation, and apply your new understanding to build a MACC for a Taslandian company.

PART 5: Organisational management in the low carbon economy

Study the design features of an emissions trading scheme. Taslandian companies are now seeking employees with the skills and knowledge necessary to manage their carbon management responsibilities effectively.

Apply everything you’ve learnt by taking on the management responsibility for two Taslandian companies, making decisions on how to engage with the risks and opportunities of a carbon constrained world, while continuing to maximise economic output. Help your company to build resilience in the face of climate change, and prosper in the low carbon economy!

Approach: Videos, guest expert insights, student leaderboard, real-world case studies, quizzes, discussions, polls, skills-based practicals, scenario-based problem solving.
