"If everyone does Carbon Literacy Training we'll solve the climate crisis tomorrow"

Introducing Carbon Literacy Training

Reducing emissions relies on every person in an organisation being aware of the carbon impacts of their decisions and feeling empowered to take action. To cut our carbon emissions by the kind of reductions science demands, we will need to change culture alongside technology.

Positive Planet is an accredited trainer of the internationally renowned Carbon Literacy Project, a qualification recognised by the United Nations. Carbon Literacy training provides organisations with an awareness of the climate-related costs and impacts of their activities and the ability and motivation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Being carbon literate equips you and your teams with new insights and tools to build resilience and take advantage of the growth opportunities presented by a net-zero carbon future.

Why become certified?

Positive Planet supports our clients to understand the climate science and the business importance behind a transition to a sustainable future by empowering them with the knowledge and tools to make impactful change. Clients will come away with a greater appreciation of the material risks, impacts and opportunities climate change presents and the tools to create an action plan to move forward:

  • how climate change is impacting us now and in the future
  • how to find and use the information to explain climate change
  • an awareness of the climate-related costs and impacts of organisational activities and procurement practices
  • empowering management teams with the knowledge and tools to make impactful change
  • ability and motivation to effect positive change and ultimately reduce carbon emissions
  • how to navigate the decisive decade and find growth opportunities through sustainability
  • how to encourage culture change and align continuous professional development to the sustainability

The engaging and interactive training allows delegates to map their carbon footprint and understand and motivate them to reduce personal and workplace emissions.

How do we get certified?

In order to become certified as Carbon Literate, you must take part in a day’s worth of accredited Carbon Literacy Accredited learning.

A day’s worth of learning can be achieved in a number of ways: E-Learning, Workshops, and/or Self-Directed learning (e.g. homework set by your trainer) and must add up to at around 8 hours. Have a chat with us to see how your training can be delivered.

Following successful completion of the course, you will be awarded a Carbon Literacy certificate which will be unique to you.

What is a carbon literate organisation?

A Carbon Literate Organisation (CLO) is an organisation that has been accredited by The Carbon Literacy Project as having a substantial commitment to Carbon Literacy. CLO accreditation supports the development (and recruitment and retention) of a Carbon Literate workforce and requires an organisation to engage positively with its audience or community in developing and delivering low carbon behaviour.

The accreditation has been designed to showcase significant dedication to Carbon Literacy. The four tiers – Bronze, Silver, Gold, & Platinum – ensure distinction between organisations of differing levels of commitment.
