What is carbon management  ?    
Carbon management is a systematic, organisation-wide approach to reducing carbon emissions, integrating the technical, regulatory, financial, corporate governance and communications aspects within an overarching strategy and plan of action.  Its principal aim is to help a client adapt to an increasingly carbon-constrained economy.  An effective carbon management approach will seek to define and maximise strategic opportunities as well as develop a tactical plan to limit liabilities.
Carbon Management is a five-step process with impacts at all levels throughout an organisation.  As it is a largely strategic process, strong leadership from senior management is essential.
