Our training helps businesses, organisations and individuals across Scotland to understand the Climate Emergency and respond to the risks, responsibilities and opportunities ahead.

In addition to the physical impacts of our changing climate, The Scottish Government's declaration of a Climate Emergency means changes for the way that we do life and business in Scotland, as we strive to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

But what practical actions can you and/or your organisation take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to climate impacts and ensure your successful transition to a greener way of doing things?

From Accredited Training to Short Introductory Sessions, we are working across sectors and subjects to help businesses, organisations and individuals understand the Climate Emergency and mount a successful response.

We offer both online and in-person training options. 

We are a Scottish-based environmental charity, and since pioneering Climate Emergency Training in Scotland in 2016, have supported over 5,000 people to become Carbon Literate, including representatives of businesses, organisations and individuals.

Catherine Gee, our Deputy Chief Executive
