Learn important tools and techniques to analyze your project’s carbon foot print. In addition analyze how LEED v4 address carbon credits.

Product Description


Today more than ever, the discussion on carbon credits and carbon footprints is going mainstream. One reason is we now have a much better understanding of how almost everything we do produces carbon. Carbon credits have turned into a multi-billion dollar industry where countries, regions, and businesses buy and sell credits through special markets.

There is probably no green topic on which nations have had less agreement than the strategies to put in place for capping carbon production. The disagreements reflect the fact that countries and regions are at different stages of economic development and are reluctant to do anything that could have an unknown impact on economic activity levels.

This critical topic touches on environmental sustainability which drives home the importance of understanding carbon credits. This course discusses the fundamental of carbon credits, and considers their needs and drivers. There is also a review of where nations, states, cities, and corporations are heading in the world of carbon cap and trade€™ and the role of individuals in the carbon credit industry. This is an opportunity to learn important tools and techniques to analyze your project’s carbon foot print. In addition, course attendees learn how LEED v4 addressed carbon credits.

    The first part was incredibly informative. The second part was more dry, but I’m not sure how you could make those any more exciting. Lots of useful information

    Are there any more countries in route of the carbon legacy?

    In this course, course instructors don’t tell just Carbon Credit information to you, they tell you all the details related to the Carbon in I. Mark Van Soestbergen and Devesh Nirmul are professionals about Carbon and they have a lot of experience in this subject.

    This course instructs the Carbon Credits and calculations. It could provide more examples about LEED Carbon Credit, but still it is enough. Some images used in the presentation could have been more clear and understandable. I would recommend to this class if you want to have an intermediate level of knowledge about the carbon and carbon credits.

    An interesting part of the video is it provides a scientific take on what exactly carbon dioxide is and how it exactly impacts our environment. This is explained through the carbon cycles, its impact is then expanded upon with greenhouse gases and global warming. To curtail the effect of carbon on the environment the presentation touches on a handful of carbon offset standards. A majority of the presentation focuses on the bigger picture and not just how LEED addresses the carbon issue through the credits.
    The information provided in the presentation appears to target those that have more of an intermediate level of knowledge of the subject, as it may take an additional view or two to get a better understanding of what’s being presented. Mark and Devesh do a great job of presenting the information; they both go back and forth actively discussing the slides information and providing some of their experiences. Overall I feel the course achieves its intended objectives. I also recommend this class to anyone who would like to gain a more in depth understanding of basis behind the carbon credits.

    Mr. van Soestbergen and Mr. Nirmul delivers a comprehensive review of carbon credits. They walk us though the science behind carbon dioxide, carbon cycle, global warming and greenhouse gases. Then they explain how the carbon markets work. It was interesting to see the current and proposed schemes that put a price on carbon on an international level.

    A highlight is the discussion of carbon credits aka carbon offsets to the built environment. We all discuss building lifecycle but we add greenhouse gas emissions to the discussion. Although the green power and carbon offsets credit is not a popular credit, every project should analyze and understand their carbon footprint. The presenters did a great job in meeting the educational objectives. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in the fundamental of carbon credits.

    Attendees need to listen carefully to the presentation since some of the slides are blurry. Also, be aware that the course cannot be downloaded so make sure you have good internet connection.
