As some of our reader might remember, Jennifer, Claire and I are teaching an on-line Carbon Management Course for the new UMASS Dartmouth Certificate in Sustainable Development.  We recently interviewed our friend and colleague Brett Pasinella, from the UNH Sustainability Academy, for the benefit of our students.  But the conversation was so interesting, we thought our blog readers would enjoy listening too!  Tune in to me and Brett talking about the challenging transition of greenhouse gas inventory to carbon management plan, and about how specific reduction goals have changed the UNH community’s attitudes towards energy projects. 

In the second file, Brett takes time to describe how he and his colleagues tackle the challenge of evaluating the communication, education, and participatory elements of carbon reduction projects, and not just energy dollars or tons of carbon saved.  Brett also shares his tips for succeeding in the growing field of carbon management and how one succeeds at “being a jack-of-all-trades and a master-of-none”. 

So tune in!  And tell us what you think!  At CA-CP we think one of the most challenging aspects of carbon management is ensuring that inventories become reduction plans, and that those reduction plans, in turn, become institutionalized in the everyday workings of an organization.  UNH has done both better than most.  And like the excellent participant in our sustainability community that they are, they are remarkably open about the challenges they face(d).   Click here to hear their story!  (click title to play - right-click, then save-as to download)
