Opportunity: Green Champions Training

12th January 2016

Resource Efficient Scotland are offering a free one day workshop at Edinburgh Zoo on the 24th of March (10:00-16:00) for influencers looking to gain the skills and knowledge needed to become the workplace's Green Champion.

Get all the skills you need to develop a resource efficiency action plan for your organisation and identify the things you can start doing today to save money on energy, water, waste and raw materials.

Rising energy, water and raw material costs and increasing consumer pressure continue to challenge the way that businesses across Scotland manage their environmental performance.

Our online Green Champions training course is already helping organisations across Scotland prepare for this challenge by providing knowledge, tried-and-tested techniques, best practice examples, and free tools and templates.

This live event will pack the entire Green Champions Planning Modules into one day, and is delivered first hand by our team of business experts, guest speakers and one-to-one advisors.

Get the skills and knowledge other professionals have already learnt through the Green Champions online training course. Find out about available funding, understand the changing resource landscape and go beyond compliance to save money, grow profits and increase competitive advantage.

Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for anyone in your organisation who influences or has direct responsibility for environmental performance, as well as members of your management team engaged in organisational improvement.

Particularly ideal for:

  • health, safety and environment managers;
  • environmental performance champions;
  • compliance managers;
  • facilities managers; and
