The Australian Government has introduced the Clean Energy Future (CEF) policy, which includes the carbon tax and emissions trading scheme to help stimulate and steer the Australian economy toward a low carbon base. The introduction of the CEF will have an influence on your business operations and liabilities.
We hear a lot about climate change, and its possible effects. We see pictures of drought- stricken farmland and polar bears stranded on ice floes. We see satellite images and data that are said to be alarming, but that may be difficult to interpret. And we’re told we must make changes – on a personal level, and in the way we do business.
But what does it really mean? How can it be explained in terms that most people can understand? And – most important – what does it mean for you, for your business, and for the economy?

Potentially, there are big opportunities for both large and small businesses if they DO effectively manage their carbon risks. If you’re aggressive and proactive, you can make significant operational efficiencies. This is especially true if you’re flexible to changing requirements – which will likely happen. Plan to leverage all your low carbon opportunities and promote your green reputation. And finally, you can avoid costly errors and penalties and be a leader in the low carbon economy.
What does a low carbon economy mean?
By “low carbon economy,” we mean an economy that has met its energy resource needs via low carbon inputs and outputs, and clean energy production. The aim of a low carbon economy is to reduce the energy intensity of each activity via the redesign of industrial processes and systems (which includes using less energy), replacing of carbon intensive industrial processes and equipment and the investment into innovation and technology that promotes clean (low or no carbon) energy. A low carbon economy also includes the development of sequestration based offsets processes/projects and practices that ‘balance out’ the emissions that cannot be reduced or eradicated by other means.

Once you have completed the first unit above you are then eligible to complete the following:
CTICM302A Measure carbon emissions in three scopes.
This unit covers the skills needed to be able to classify greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under the three GHG protocol scopes and to implement methods for converting quantities of GHG to a carbon equivalent (CO2–e) unit of measure. This unit focuses on the application of the skills needed to calculate carbon emissions for reporting data using an appropriate tool.
CTICM302A Measure carbon emissions in three scopes covers:
- Identify the three scopes for carbon emissions
- Identify sources of greenhouse gas emissions
- Classify carbon emissions into correct three scopes
- Identify legislation and regulations applicable to an organisation’s carbon
- Identify the impact of own work requirements on carbon reporting
- Identify and calculate carbon emission’s applicable in the workplace
- Write reports to explain carbon reduction opportunities and renewable energy
CTICM303A Evaluate carbon reduction and renewable energy options
This unit covers the knowledge and skills needed to be able to determine actions or select products and make recommendations that will facilitate reducing carbon emissions within a workplace. The focus is on identifying and evaluating options for improvements through procedural and capital/infrastructure change. In addition it examines opportunities to use renewable inputs to reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint. $297.00 (no GST)
CTICM303A Evaluate carbon reduction and renewable energy options covers:
- Identify sources of carbon emissions that affect and organizational carbon
- Evaluate effectiveness cost and ease of implementation of proposed procedural
- Evaluate procedural carbon reduction opportunities and their effectiveness
- Evaluate capital or infrastructure change and effectiveness for carbon reduction
CTICM304A Assist implementation and monitoring of a Carbon Management Response Plan
This unit covers the knowledge and skills to assist in the implementation and monitoring of a workplace response plan for addressing climate change and carbon emissions risk. The unit focuses on the application of systems and processes that an organisation needs to implement for a Carbon Management Response Plan (CMRP). $297.00 (no GST)
CTICM304A Assist implementation and monitoring of a Carbon Management Response Plan covers:
- Design a comprehensive strategy to lower your personal and organisational
- carbon emissions Interpret – Carbon Management Response Plan (CMRP)
- Identify carbon reduction targets applicable to own work area from CMRP
- Quantify the climate change impact as a CO2e contribution from both work and a
- personal perspective
- Identify ownership and responsibilities of other workplace activities that could
- contribute to the CMRP targets.
- Communicate with stakeholders to plan a CMRP implementation strategy for
- your organization
- Document resources required for the implementation of the CMRP
There are eight units in the Certificate III in Carbon Management and each of the nationally recognised units count towards your new qualification.
