Target Audience

Utilities, engineers, students and researchers in the wastewater sector


This webinar series is organised by the  IWA Climate Smart Utilities Initiative in partnership with DANVA.

With a focus on progress in the Nordic region, this webinar series will highlight the Nordic principles for a road towards a climate-neutral water sector, demonstrating some of the Danish national monitoring programmes for nitrous oxide and methane emissions and concrete actions by utilities. The series will also discuss collaborative efforts to maximise mitigation today.

The third webinar of the series will highlight how Denmark is monitoring and mitigating nitrous oxide emissions, bringing attendees up to speed with the collaborative national monitoring work which has been undertaken by Danish tech providers, utilities, consultants and industry regulators. Sharing lessons learned and key insights into nitrous oxide monitoring and mitigation, this webinar will also highlight key success factors, ongoing work and lessons for global action.


Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  • Engage with stakeholders at the local and national levels around Greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions in the water sector
  • Support with GHG accounting in a water utility
  • Develop insights into the monitoring and reduction of GHG emissions, knowing where to focus efforts
