This course has been developed to provide learners with an understanding of the knowledge and skills that are required to adopt more sustainable, environmentally friendly business practices.

Target Audience

It seems to be in the media a lot these days - another business proclaiming it has gone green or renewed its focus on the environment. Green initiatives can seem like the latest buzzword, designed to sound impressive without any meaningful substance. It can be easy to adopt a cynical perspective. However, it is not all greenwashing and spin – some companies are genuinely embracing sustainability. Businesses going green is not just a trend but a legitimate movement towards a more environmentally conscious future. So how can your business come to the party?

The benefits of a business going green aren’t just good for the environment. It can lead to long-term cost savings through reduced energy consumption, and minimising waste can save money on disposal costs or reduce the amount of product lost in the manufacturing process. It makes the business look good, which results in an enhanced brand reputation with consumers, increasing customer loyalty and attracting new customers. It can give companies a competitive advantage against other companies, making them more attractive during the bidding process. It can also mean that a company is more like to comply with environmental regulations, which can mean avoiding expensive fines or penalties.

Transitioning to a green business model doesn’t just help the environment – it can be seriously beneficial for your business!

Businesses play a crucial role in addressing issues such as climate change and environmental degradation. This course is designed to empower businesses and their workforces to drive change.

Being green isn’t just about recycling or saving on energy, it’s a broad approach that involves many different people in all parts of the business. This course will upskill all employees globally, regardless of prior knowledge, on how products can be green by design, how the materials used can be sustainable, how waste can be managed effectively, and working with greener partners and suppliers.

Learning Outcomes

By doing this, the business can reduce its negative impact on the environment, community, society and economy. Companies can go green by using recycled materials in their products; reduce waste through their manufacturing and shipping processes; or by encouraging customers to repair their items instead of buying new ones.
