The module is designed to meet corporate management's need for briefing on the requirements of Emissions Trading, due for launch in 2010 by the UNFCCC United Nations Convention on Climate Change, under the Kyoto Protocol. It covers the essentials of man-made Climate Change, the workings of the UNFCCC and Emissions Trading. It examines the UK, European and US responses, the potential corporate costs and opportunities - and provides a framework to assess the implications for a specific organization and develop a strategy to integrate this knowledge into corporate management/leadership at every level.
