• CII Certified Professional in Resource Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability

About Course

CII offers 'First of its kind' online certification course on Resource Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability.

ENVIRONMENTAL TOUCH POINTS

Since the course is focussed on environmental sustainability and climate change, all discussions in the course will be limited to parameters / factors affecting environmental footprint and adding to climate change. Environmental touchpoints will vary based on the type of operation of a facility. A facility can be an industrial facility or a building facility. Therefore, for the course, the environmental touchpoints covered will be common to all sectors and facilities. Participants will have to build upon the concepts covered in the course and identify saving opportunities.

Topics to be covered

Participants will be exposed to carbon footprinting, energy auditing. water auditing, waste auditing, life cycle assessment, product stewardship principles and green buildings.Detailed course coverage:
