Why is being certified as Carbon Literate important?

The training is fully accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project and gives you the opportunity to be certified as Carbon Literate. Being Carbon Literate means gaining knowledge of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and identifying positive actions to tackle them.

Having a Carbon Literate workforce is vital to help businesses meet the new regulations and customer expectations that a net-zero Scotland will bring. Businesses with a Carbon Literate workforce will find they can develop more efficient and cost-effective operations. And as an individual, you’ll find the training empowers you to take effective action on climate change and develop your skills and experience.

More about the training

In addition to the global context, we utilise content relevant to Scotland. And we cut through the jargon, so you’ll have a clear understanding of terms like ‘global warming’, ‘climate change’, ‘net zero’ and ‘carbon footprint’.

Climate impacts can seem overwhelming, so we emphasise hope over despair and include information on co-benefits of action on climate change.

Our Climate Emergency Training is eight hours of learning and takes place over four weeks. Each week involves an hour-long online session led by our expert trainers, followed by some self-study tasks to be completed before the next session.

The content of the sessions for ths Summer course is outlined:

Week 1: An introduction to climate change (25 July)
Week 2: Climate impacts and adaptation (1 August)
Week 3: Reducing emissions (8 August)
Week 4: Climate action and communication (15 August)

All the above sessions will run 14:00 - 15:00.

We keep the training class size to a maximum of 15 participants to allow for group interaction and discussion.

To go forwards and apply to be certified as Carbon Literate you must attend all four of the live sessions, and complete the self-study tasks, including the Carbon Literacy Assessment
