How do we get Carbon Literacy certified?

In order to become certified as Carbon Literate, you must complete a Carbon Literacy Training course. The course takes one day and can be delivered at your place or ours, or by e-learning. All participants commit to make positive changes to reduce their own carbon footprint, both at home and at work. 

Following successful completion of the course, you will be awarded a Carbon Literacy certificate.  Companies, schools, charities and public sector organisations can also apply to become accredited as a Carbon Literate Organisation

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.
