Businesses in Cornwall are set to benefit from new training to help them reduce their carbon footprints.
The Eden Project has joined forces with Cornwall College Business and the Environmental Skills Network to create the new course – Carbon Management in the Workplace.
The one-day programme, which leads to a nationally-recognised qualification, gives people practical skills on cutting carbon emissions in the workplace, at home and in the community.
It will be run monthly either at one of the Cornwall College campuses or at Eden. Course fees are £250 per delegate to include course materials, exam fees, certification, lunch and refreshments.
The first course will be on October 26 at Cornwall College’s Plymouth conference venue The Business Space.
Delegates will learn about the impact of climate change, how to identify sources of greenhouse gas emissions within their own organisations, and how to calculate their companies’ carbon footprints using carbon calculators.
There are no specific pre-requisite qualifications for the course and there is a short exam paper at the end of the day.
The course is accredited by the Government’s Qualifications and Credit Framework and all successful candidates will receive an Edexcel Award in Developing Skills (QCF) Carbon Management in the Workplace Level 3.
