Environmental Awareness

As the impacts of climate change become more eventful every year, an increasing amount of public policies are being implemented to tackle the growing issue and reduce Britain’s carbon footprint.

As a result, environmental awareness has become a major topic in both the private and public sectors, with every organisation having a duty to reduce its impact on the environment by operating a cleaner and ‘greener’ company policy.

From air, water and land pollution to waste/recycling practices, the business industry stands at the forefront of any efforts and hope to solve the issue of climate change.

There are plenty of social and societal advantages to going green; and therefore effective environmental awareness training will raise the subject’s understanding of all the negative impacts that energy wastage, material waste and pollution have on the environment, and also provide information on the many positive impacts of being an environmentally friendly organisation.
