It's now difficult to deny that human activities are having a devastating impact on our environment, with global warming, pollution, the exhaustion of natural resources, and the destruction of natural habitats all posing very real and immediate threats to life on this planet.

But while environmental problems are global, the solutions are often much closer to home. They start with the sort of routine decisions we make in our day-to-day lives. And that's where our Environmental Awareness online training course can help. Packed full of practical information, tips and advice, the course provides your staff with a clear understanding of the main threats to the environment, and the steps they can take to reduce their environmental footprint.

With Environmental Awareness, you can help your staff to stop being part of the problem, and to start being part of the solution!

The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences.
