Climate change is an incredibly important issue that is causing significant changes to our planet, with data from NASA showing that 2020 was the joint warmest year on record.
It is essential that we all understand the environmental issues our planet faces and take action to reduce our carbon footprint by, for example, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. We also need to do what we can to operate more sustainable businesses that take environmental management seriously.
This course is designed to raise awareness of environmental issues, and provide learners with the information needed to understand their environmental impact and how to reduce it. It is suitable for all workers, regardless of role or industry.
Meets the requirements of HSE, CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine, Exor, SMAS and other SSIPs.
The United Nations has a series of Sustainable Development Goals, one of which is to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. To help meet this goal, it is important that workers are aware of environmental issues and understand how they can reduce their carbon footprint, both at work and at home.
