Join Alberta Innovates in Edmonton on October 22nd, 2018 from 10 AM to 12:30 PM to learn the principles of measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions!

Alberta Innovates is pleased to host leading GHG accounting expert Dr. Christine Schuh to explain the basics of GHG accounting in relation to the Clean Technology Business Innovation Voucher Program (CTBI), which supports Alberta Small and Medium Sized Enterprises in assessing, planning for and implementing opportunities for GHG reduction. We invite entrepreneurs, consultants, and business representatives interested in learning more about GHG quantification and the CTBI program to participate.

Visitor parking is on the south side of the building, in front of the main entrance area. If you are unable to attend in person, we have setup video conferencing (see links at the bottom of page) however we have a capacity limit of 50 remote users.

  • Logic of Worksheets
  • Q and A
  • Wrap Up

About Dr. Schuh:

Dr. Schuh led the Canadian climate change practice for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) for a decade. During that period she was responsible for developing the greenhouse gas assurance (verification) services, including training, infrastructure development and delivery. She developed and tested the verification methodology in Canada and assisted in extending the structured verification approach for multiple climate change systems (including ETS, WCI, Australian and Alberta) using an accounting based framework for PwC US and Global. She developed one of the first greenhouse gas verification standards for the Aluminum industry in early 2003. She is the co-facilitator for ISO 14064-3 on greenhouse gas assurance and authored the bulk of that standard. She was one of three experts that assisted in crafting the accounting standard on GHG assurance (ISAE 3410). She currently sits on the ISO international working group developing a standard on carbon capture and storage. She assisted in the verification content for the WRI/WBCSD greenhouse gas standards on corporate and project accounting. She has worked with several governments (including Alberta, Quebec and British Columbia) in establishing greenhouse gas quantification methodologies that are consistent with science and general accounting principles and assisted with the design of policy elements. Recently, she has extended her knowledge of carbon trading systems to other applications and assisted Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development in developing a trading system for wetlands.

Dr. Schuh also has extensive experience in the area of performance indicators and metrics. Her original position within PwC was to assist companies and governments on developing metric systems based on her extensive research conducted during her doctorate on performance indicators. The City of Calgary, Suncor, CCEMC, and Toronto Hydro have all developed appropriate metrics to measure both qualitative and quantitative aspects of their organizations and have metrics appropriate for management and reporting based on this work.

Now at, she currently advises the Emission Reductions Alberta (ERA) and Climate Change Innovation and Technology Framework (CCITF) on the integrity of emission reductions. She has recently authored the Greenhouse Gas Verification Guidance at Reasonable Level of Assurance for Alberta Environment and Sustainable Development. Her unique blend of engineering and assurance theory, knowledge, and experience position her as one of the leading experts in the world on greenhouse gas verification.
