Successfully manage an organisation's ISO 14001 certification! A step-by-step online course to get an organisation really green.
Are you struggling to understand where to start to ensure your organisation reduces those environmental impacts? Are you unsure what resources you need and how to go about the reduction process?
It is really hard to know where to start. It is expensive using consultants and much better to have someone in the team to know what it is that you need to reduce; enabling better communication within your organisation.
Will, the course tutor, has coming up to 20 years of experience, and collectively the team has loads! We don't want to add it up, it makes us feel old and mature! We feel we need to pass on this knowledge and help others through the process of greening up their organisation, learning from our mistakes and using our proven methodology.
This course will help and direct you through the process of reducing your organisation's environmental impact and ensure you do not miss anything out. We help you with your environmental policy, how to communicate to all relevant parties, what you should concentrate on to reduce, how to manage your legal compliance and much more. We have designed this course for you, in order to achieve the reductions that the United Nations are talking about; we need you to be armed with the knowledge that we have as consultants.
Once you have signed up you will have access to 18 modules specially designed to help you ensure your organisation reduces its environmental impact. You will have access to 20 different templates that will help you on this journey. The course should take anytime between one month and three months to complete. We will assess and advice you on your environmental management system through an embedded multiple choice exam (40%) and a two hours phone call (60%). At the end of the course you will not only have the most robust environmental management programme possible but also be ready for ISO certification!
By completing this course you are embedding sustainability into your organisation.
Because you are not using consultants you are able to reduce your environmental impact cost effectively.
You will be able to complete this course in your own time. Your organisation will be able to reduce its impact as quickly as you want it to.
We will provide you with the complete set of skills to reduce your organisation's environmental impact. You will come out of the course as a very knowledgable environmental manager.
At Green Element, we're passionate about helping organisations develop and nurture a better relationship with the environment.
Our experts advise organisations big and small on a range of sustainability issues, from waste management and renewable energy implementation to environmental strategy, corporate responsibility and tenders.
