Achieving Climate Excellence: Exploring Greenhouse Gas Reporting in Russia

A collaborative course exploring the national and regional reporting on greenhouse gas emissions and absorption in Russia — offered by the Applied AI and the Energy Transition centers — has successfully concluded. Conducted in a hybrid format, the course covered Russian greenhouse gas reporting standards, national and regional emission nuances, data collection approaches, and enterprise reporting processes. Designed for professionals in the banking, energy, oil and gas, metallurgy, and chemical industries, the program focused on preparing and implementing a climate project. The course, which welcomed 20 graduates, provided fundamental knowledge of greenhouse gases, carbon footprint measurement, and the impact of anthropogenic factors on climate change. The participants also developed practical skills in using AI-based solutions for air pollution monitoring and emissions reporting. The initiative was supported through a grant from the federal budget. The course featured prominent guest speakers, making it a valuable experience for participants.
