Event Description

A practical and comprehensive training day to help your organisation make real efficiency savings, engage with staff and stakeholders and improve the environmental impact of your workplace. 

“Quick paced and fun approach to environmental sustainability with a group of knowledgeable professionals.” Joan McGarvey (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) 

“It was a useful overview of how to take action to improve environmental awareness and create change in the workplace." -Mark Pearson (Surrey Wildlife Trust) 

“Friendly, informative day of learning based around reality of the workplace.” Fred Wilson (Burrough Court Estate Ltd) 


This thought provoking training day is designed to help you to gain a detailed understanding of the issues surrounding environmental sustainability and develop a meaningful action plan that will have a real and positive impact on your organisation and the environment. Through a combination of presentations, workshops, group discussions and real life case studies, this course provides an invaluable resource for organisations looking to tackle their environmental performance. 

This training session will provide: 
1) True benefits of a greener office – from cost savings and increased efficiency to the way your organisation is perceived by others. 
2) The major obstacles to changing your workplace and ways to overcome them – share positive experiences, barriers and get expert advice on overcoming challenges. 
3) Legislation “need to knows” – steps to take to ensure you are up-to-date and legally compliant. 
4) Real-life case study: A representative of a leading social landlord will discuss and take questions on the practical application of environmental policy in the workplace. 
5) Practical suggestions for reducing energy and waste, greener transport and purchasing choices and making a positive impact on your local environment. 
6) How to review your current performance – environmental target setting and methods for monitoring your improvements. 
7) Top tips on communicating your achievements – ensure internal staff, external partners and funders realise the significance of your improvements. 

Course Outcomes: 
A clear understanding of the range of benefits to your organisation. 
Understand where and how you can make changes to your current practice, and the barriers that may have to be overcome. 
Feel confident in implementing your environmental policies.

This includes charities and voluntary groups looking to reduce the environmental impact of their workplace, local authorities and government affiliated groups looking to improve their policies and build upon existing skills, and SMEs and social enterprises concerned with improving their environmental performance.
