The Government’s Environment Bill has placed the environment even further up the political agenda and will affect all sectors and organisations. Given this incoming legislation, the Government’s commitment to becoming net zero by 2050, and climate change never being far from the news, now is the best time to ensure your organisation is more environmentally aware.

This Environmental Awareness Training course has been specifically designed for the public sector to help you comply with the incoming legislation; engender an appreciation of the environment throughout your organisation; gain advice on how to become a net zero public body; learn from those who have implemented “Green” policies and take back an environmental awareness toolkit.

Attend this informative and highly-interactive Environmental Awareness Training course to gain the necessary tools and knowledge to prepare your organisation for the incoming Bill and ensure full compliance with environmental legislation.
