New Learning Management System (LMS) Questions
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol team is excited to announce the launch of a new eLearning platform for GHG Protocol’s online learning curriculum. The new platform will streamline the registration process and open new opportunities to improve the learner experience. The new platform will improve GHG Protocol’s capacity to register and support learners seeking a better understanding of the standards and guidance published by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The new platform is live as of March 3, 2023. After this date, GHG Protocol will no longer accept course registrations in the sunsetting platform.
Learners had access to their courses in progress in the previous learning management system until June 30, 2023. The previous system is now deactivated.
Learners with enrollments in the sunsetting system had until June 30, 2023 to complete the course. The sunsetting system is now deactivated.
The GHG Protocol can set individuals up as Company Admins to enroll learners in courses they purchase on their behalf and view their completion stats. To be designated a company administrator please create an account in the LMS and submit a request through the eLearning contact form.

Accessing and Purchasing Courses Questions
GHG Protocol's courses are available for purchase online. We recommend using Google Chrome or another updated and modern web browser when accessing the learning management system.

The course page has multiple links and resources for your review and use. Click the activity links to access the resources. All required activities must be completed to receive the certificate of completion at the end of the course.
