About this course

If you feel that you need to do something to get you started on your journey to combat climate change and are working for or with an SME, then through this course you will get the knowledge and tools to set you off on the right path. No previous environmental knowledge is needed.

Carbon Literacy is: “An awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.”
