    I now have a better understanding of the process behind developing an environmental policy & strategy for a corporate company. The course was well worth my time & money and I look forward to putting into practice what I've learnt.

    Karlien de Bruin , GraySwan Investments

    The Carbon Footprint Analyst course was one of the best courses I have ever attended. The course was really practical and after the course you should be able to apply what was learnt. The lecturer also shared his knowledge and experience that he picked up while working in the field which added extra weight to the course material.

    I would just like to thank Terra Firma for a great Measurement and Verification course, this was possibly the best course that I have done.

  • Testimonial
    Edwin Makushu - Senior Ecopreneur, Food & Trees for Africa

    This course should be added as one of the core modules in high institutions' environmental qualifications. I plan to use the skills I learned to calculate and report on Carbon footprints of big industries in South Africa. Seeing that the carbon tax will be phased as from January 2016, every company will need a detailed report of its footprint.
