The trainees of the Professional Diploma in Carbon Footprint were qualified to obtain a license to practice the profession of Carbon Footprint Auditor in its second edition yesterday, on the sidelines of the Sustainability and Carbon Footprint Standards Symposium at the Greater Cairo Library in Zamalek, where Professor Dr. Mohamed Etman, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Institute, and Ambassador Mostafa El-Sherbiny, handed over passing certificates. The vocational training program is in its first phase, by handing over the trainees in the professional diploma for calculating the carbon footprint certificates of passage, which lasted over 96 training hours, and which is organized by the National Quality Institute in cooperation with the Voluntary Team for Humanitarian Work Foundation, within the framework of the initiative of the United Nations carbon footprint and sustainability auditors and experts, under Sponsored by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Eng. Ahmed Samir, in which 30 Egyptian companies and bodies participated, as the National Institute for Quality is the first body in the Arab world to build capabilities in the field of the carbon footprint and the mechanism for adjusting carbon limits. Dr. Hanem Al-Sheikh and Dr. Hanem Al-Sheikh also attended. Dr. Mukhtar Sami, Major General Yahya Abu Talib, Dr. Amira Darwish, and the director mentioned that in order to become a carbon footprint auditor, he must pass the second stage of the training program to qualify carbon footprint auditors, as training takes place for 25 hours in this stage on how to verify emissions using “ISO 14064 and 14065, 17029 and ISO 31000 Risk Management”
Diploma objectives:
1- Building companies’ capabilities to comply with global disclosure standards IFRS-S2 by preparing a true and fair accounting of emissions through studying the GHG PROTOCOL and complying with the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).
2- To simplify and reduce inventory collection costs
3- To facilitate participation in local and global greenhouse gas programs
4- Increase consistency and transparency in accounting and reporting on greenhouse gases
5- Obtaining knowledge and understanding of the company or organization’s greenhouse gas emissions processes
6- Identify emissions “hotspots” in the company’s supply chain and value chains
7- Measure and manage greenhouse gas emissions.
8- Determine the company’s emissions reduction procedures, aiming to improve greenhouse gas performance, to help companies manage and reduce emissions.
Diploma developers: The National Quality Institute in cooperation with the Voluntary Team Foundation for Humanitarian Work monitored by the Paris Agreement at the United Nations UNFCCC
The topics of the diploma were: four basic topics in accordance with the guidelines of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG) of the Resources Institute and the Global Sustainability Council, the International Disclosure Standards for Sustainability and Climate Risk Assessment of the ISSB, and the mechanism for adjusting carbon limits for the EU, which are:
1- International Sustainability Disclosure Standards IFRS-S1 Climate Risk Assessment IFRS-S2
2- Compatibility with the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).
3- Energy emissions
4- Emissions from industry and buildings
5- Emissions from agriculture, animal production and land use
6- Emissions from solid waste

Steps and methodology of the theoretical study and practical case studies according to GHG PROTOCOL:
1- Principles of accounting and reporting for greenhouse gases
2- Setting organizational boundaries
3- Determine operational limits
4- Determine the base year and track emissions over time
5- Inventory and calculation of emissions
6- Setting the goal of reducing the carbon footprint
7- Preparing disclosure reports on greenhouse gas emissions

The International Climate Risk Assessment Reporting Standard (IFRS-S2) requires companies and organizations to develop comprehensive plans to disclose climate-related information about how they will transition to a low-carbon economy by calculating emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG PROTOCOL) for the processes that companies and organizations use to identify risks. and assess, prioritize and monitor climate-related opportunities, including whether and how to integrate these processes into the overall risk management process of companies or organizations, as the GHG PROTOCOL disclosure requirements for greenhouse gases cover different types of emissions that are also compatible with the GHG PROTOCOL adjustment mechanism. CBAM carbon limits including:
First: Scope 1: Direct greenhouse gas emissions that occur from sources owned or controlled by the company.
Second: Scope 2: Indirect greenhouse gas emissions that occur as a result of the generation of purchased electricity, heat, or steam consumed by the company.
Third: Indirect Scope 3 emissions outside Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions that occur in the company’s value chain, including primary and final emissions.
Fourth: Preparing reports and setting the goal of reducing emissions

Target group
1- Those responsible for their regulatory work on greenhouse gas emissions include environmental, sustainability, quality, health and safety and professional engineers.
2- Carbon and environmental consultants and financial controller
3- Greenhouse gas auditors, including chartered accountants, engineers, and others
4- Those who work in regulatory or governmental authorities and factories
5- Value chain managers
6- Researchers in climate, environment and quality systems
7- Stakeholders

Main benefits:
1. The partnership or organization’s commitment to international and local standards for financial markets, laws, regulations, and the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).
2. Guarantee for stakeholders, including investors and others
3. Good public relations and improving the reputation of the organization or partnership
4. Protection from future climate hazards
5. Gain a competitive advantage
