Carbon Literacy Training

Take action against climate change, decarbonise operations and enable sustainable growth with Carbon Literacy training.

Our online Carbon Literacy course explores sustainability in a business context. You’ll learn how to develop a carbon management plan specific to your organisation and reduce emissions across your operations. The course also covers improving resource efficiencies to cut costs and the environmental impact of your organisation.

About Carbon Literacy Training

Climate inaction is delaying net zero progress. Without bold and rapid decarbonisation of our economy, life on Earth is under threat.

Failing to find more sustainable ways of working or reducing carbon emissions is leaving communities and companies vulnerable to the worst effects of climate change. Rising global average temperatures, plummeting biodiversity and increasingly volatile and frequent extreme weather are driving cost increases, supply chain issues and economic instability.

Organisations also risk falling behind legislation or losing customers if they fail to address the environmental impacts of their operations.

Carbon Literacy explores ways to measure and reduce the environmental impact of business activities. This understanding lets you develop more sustainable operations, which unlock cost reductions, resource efficiencies and help you comply with environmental legislation and international agreements.

What are your Responsibilities for Carbon Literacy?

Firms listed on the London Stock Exchange or bidding for a government contract worth at least £5 million must submit decarbonisation action plans that outline how they will meet net-zero targets by 2050.

Additionally, larger firms must release annual reports on energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. This currently applies to around 12,000 companies although the government encourages all organisations, regardless of size, to do the same.

All organisations must also comply with environmental law. Legislation includes:

  • The Environmental Protection Act 1990 – This act makes all organisations legally responsible for their waste as long as it exists.
  • The Environmental Act 1995 – This act established the Environment Agency and grants them powers to investigate and prosecute environmental crimes.
  • Climate Change Act 2008 – This act set a legally binding target for the UK to reduce carbon emissions by 78% before 2035 and 100% by 2050.
  • Environmental Act 2021 – This act established the Office for Environmental Protection to monitor environmental performance and set targets to increase recycling, reduce plastic waste, protect wildlife and improve air and water quality. As this act is enabling legislation, it will likely lead to further legal requirements.

While not legally binding, many organisations are now expecting better environmental performance and sustainability from suppliers or partners. The UK is also committed to notable international treaties, including the Paris Climate Agreement. All member countries pledged to keep global temperatures within 2°C of pre-industrial levels, which is essential to stop the most harmful effects of climate change.

Carbon Literacy training online gives you the understanding necessary to bring your organisation and operations in line with net-zero targets and strategies. It also supports compliance with environmental legislation and demonstrates a sustainability commitment to stakeholders.
