The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute (GHGMI) was founded in response to the current and future need for qualified greenhouse gas (GHG) professionals. GHG emissions management requires a highly competent and ethical professional class to undertake measurement, reporting, verification, and mitigation activities. The Institute has developed a technically rigorous training curriculum delivered globally via e-learning and onsite workshops as well as the world's first accredited personnel certification for GHG professionals.
Our mission is to build and support a global community of experts with the highest standards of professional practice in measuring, accounting, auditing, and managing GHG emissions. This effort is critical to ensuring that market mechanisms and policy responses to climate change are effective and credible.
As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Institute is training individuals and certifying professionals to meet the highest standards of expertise and ethical conduct. The Institute is for individuals and organizations, from beginners to expert practitioners, working on all aspects of climate change, including both voluntary and regulated emission markets, national and organizational emission inventory reporting, corporate climate risk disclosure, GHG projects for emission reductions and removal enhancements, as well as GHG assessments of supply chains, products, and technologies in various industry sectors.
