Select a course from the timetable below

This course is for all members of staff whose activities could have a significant impact on the environment, as well as supervisors or managers who are being introduced to environmental issues for the first time.  Environmental issues increasingly impact on all businesses. The rising costs of energy and raw materials, growing awareness of stakeholders and increasing environmental legislation are forcing organisations to address their environmental performance. Many organisations have identified that tackling environmental issues can bring benefits to their business including reduced waste and utility costs, reduced liabilities and access to new markets and investors.

This course will help delegates and businesses to:

  • Identify primary local and global environmental impacts of their organisation
  • Be familiar with the principal terms and definitions of pollution
  • Learn core principles, key concepts as well as the importance of environmental law
  • Identify the link between their jobs and a range of environmental impacts
  • Understand business benefits of adopting an environmental management system
  • Identify key issues related to energy use and carbon management, waste minimisation, water use, pollution and emergency planning

Delegates are instructed to, and can be examined up to, the standards for the CIEH Level 2 Award in Environmental Principles and Best Practice
