This course provides local authority officers, leaders and elected members with training accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project.
After completing a day’s worth of training, which can be split over several days, participants are certified “carbon literate”. This involves completing an action plan that commits participants to individual and group action to reduce their carbon footprint. Upon successful assessment, a learner is awarded a uniquely numbered certificate. Participants will receive training tailored to whether they are a local authority officer, a leader/manager or an elected member.
Carbon literacy training enables and motivates employees to make informed decisions to cut carbon, energy and waste in your local authority. Encouraging climate conscious behaviours has also been shown to reduce energy bills and transport costs, improve morale and productivity and enhance and organisation’s image and credibility.
Our 90-minute workshop “Climate change – what everyone needs to know” can be rolled out to all employees across an organisation. It has already been delivered to hundreds of staff across different sectors. This interactive online session quickly brings participants up to speed on the climate crisis by answering the fundamental questions: What is climate change? What’s causing it? How bad could it get? What can we do about it?
Ambitious net zero targets have been set by private and public sector organisations. But to achieve them, leaders will have to bring employees and the public with them. Our workshops provide blueprints for successfully doing this.
We deliver regular webinars on how to use behavioural science or nudge approaches to drive sustainability improvements in an organisation.

Participants will learn:
We provide in-depth training in the sustainability challenges faced by particular sectors or industries.
This may involve a deeper dive into the issues around decarbonising specific sectors, such as agriculture, buildings or transport. For each sector, a breakdown of the current science and policy is provided, and the implications of this for individual organisations outlined.
We can also give training that cuts across different sustainability issues. For example, the air quality, climate change and economic problems posed by road transport.
