Why Climate Action 101?

As companies around the world recognize the urgent need to address climate change, many are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainability. However, one critical aspect of this effort is often overlooked: educating employees about the role they can play in mitigating climate change and promoting sustainable practices.

That’s where climate action courses come in. By providing training on climate change and sustainability, companies can empower their employees to make informed decisions and take actions that help reduce the company’s environmental impact. Climate action courses can cover a range of topics, from basic environmental awareness to more advanced topics such as energy efficiency, waste reduction, and sustainable procurement. By providing employees with this knowledge, companies can help create a culture of sustainability that permeates all levels of the organisation.

Investing in climate action training can have numerous benefits beyond environmental sustainability. For example, employees who are trained in sustainability practices are often more engaged and motivated in their work, which can lead to increased productivity and improved job satisfaction. Incorporating sustainability into a company’s culture can help attract and retain top talent. Millennials and Gen Z are particularly passionate about environmental issues, and many seek out employers who share their values.

By demonstrating a commitment to sustainability, companies can enhance their reputation and appeal to environmentally conscious consumers. This can lead to increased customer loyalty and improved brand recognition. Climate action training is an important investment for any company seeking to reduce its environmental impact, engage employees, and enhance its reputation. By educating employees on sustainability practices, companies can create a more sustainable future for both their business and the planet.

Connolly’s Red Mills are the latest company to complete our Climate Action 101 course after taking all the above factors into consideration. The feedback has been very positive as you will see from our Case Study video funded by Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet.
