Take action on your organisation's carbon footprint - gain the skills to adopt a robust approach to net zero and develop a decarbonisation plan.

If you’re committed to reducing your organisation's carbon footprint, but are struggling to know how to go about it, this course will help.

This 3-hour course will build your understanding of carbon auditing and carbon management, and provide you with practical knowledge about effective carbon reduction solutions. This course is an ideal follow up to our  Climate and Carbon Literacy Training, but equally useful on its own.

Specifically, we will:

  • Highlight the benefits of managing and reducing your carbon emissions, including why it’s so important to do so.
  • Build your understanding of sources and magnitudes of carbon emissions from your business, and how that varies between different business types.
  • Explain and demystify carbon auditing.
  • Help you understand and adopt a robust approach to net zero.
  • Inspire you with an introduction to the circular economy, a model for operating sustainably.
  • Increase your knowledge of specific solutions for reducing carbon emissions associated with your building energy, travel and transport and the things that you consume as a business. We’ll look at both quick wins and bigger projects, ways to consume less and ways of consuming better.
  • Advise you on the specialist help available to develop and implement these solutions and support you with your on-going carbon management.

Throughout the course we will give you time to develop an initial Decarbonisation Plan, filled with ideas generated from our discussions.

There will be an optional 30 mins extra at the end of the course to ask further questions.
