Decarbonisation Management: Certificate course

Further education Climate Change Management

The programme is offered in German and is thus directed at prospective students with a good command of German language skills. The programme’s German-language web pages provide detailed information needed on the content of the course and application procedures.

On the way to a Zero Carbon Economy, companies are challenged to avoid greenhouse gases - and to do so comprehensively, permanently and transparently. You will learn how to strategically develop and implement a successful decarbonisation of products and processes in a part-time and practical manner.

You will receive an introduction to the relevant climate legislation and learn to assess which climate-related risks and adaptation measures you should take into account. You will acquire knowledge on the preparation and reporting of an IT-supported greenhouse gas balance and on carbon footprint analysis as the basis of your climate strategy. You will discuss with scientists and practitioners what kind of measures have which climate-relevant impact and how products can be designed and communicated "net zero" or "climate positive".
