Carbon Tax Training

Written by 
Carbon Tax Workshop

Join us as we unpack the provisions of the new Carbon Tax Bill

The Carbon Tax Bill which has been debated for the past 8 years has finally been adopted and will be implemented on 01 June 2019.

The Bill will impose a liability on the greenhouse gases emitted during the production of goods and services. The nominal tax rate will be R120 per tonne of carbon emitted, although with the various tax-free allowances the rate could drop to between R6 and R48 per tonne.

The Carbon Tax Act states that any person - a partnership, trust, community, municipal entity or public listed entity - who conducts an activity which results in the emission of greenhouse gases above the allowed threshold will have to pay the carbon tax.

What we will cover:

  • The tax standards used to demonstrate tax liability
  • GHG Emissions Inventory and sources – how to identify, calculate and report emissions as per regulatory requirements?

Who should attend this workshop?

  • Sustainability Managers
  • Carbon reporting managers
  • Corporate managers
  • Energy managers
