How to support your organisation’s environmental goals with e-learning
01 March 2022
Reducing environmental impact and becoming more sustainable is a top strategic priority for the majority of organisations in 2022. More than ever, businesses need to be actively taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint as customers, investors and regulators alike demand more in all matters Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). International standards reflect and encourage this movement: ISO now requires all organisations hoping to certify to ISO 14001 to demonstrate that they provide environmental training, for example, via an e-learning solution.

Why is environmental training so important?
Businesses have a very real and urgent responsibility to reduce their environmental impact and commit to more sustainable operations. If we do not change our current route, we will burn 63% more oil, coal and gas by 2040 than in 2000. But happily, there is an alternative: just 80 minutes of sunlight could easily power the world for a whole year. Without a clear understanding and increased awareness of the climate crisis we are in and the opportunities that are available to us, the necessary changes will not occur.
Our e-learning solution is well-placed to help your organisation increase awareness of environmental matters such as this, educating your workforce in a digestible, engaging and cost-effective manner.
