Blue Marble – Education for a greener planet

bluemarble letterbox white trans back





Fewer and fewer people these days are climate change ‘deniers’.  Most of us accept what the science tells us – that human activity, especially the burning of fossil fuels, is a root cause of global warming. So the question has moved on from ‘is climate change happening’ to: ‘what are we going to do about it ?

There are five good reasons why as an employer, you should enable your employees to gain green skills. The skills they need to help you reduce your carbon footprint.

Number 1: Environmental Responsibility

The adoption of green skills in the workplace shows that the employer is environmentally responsible and committed to reducing their carbon footprint. This is becoming increasingly important for businesses, as consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious and are more likely to support eco-friendly companies.

Number 2: Cost Savings

By training staff in green skills, employers can reduce their company’s energy consumption, waste production and carbon emissions. This can lead to significant cost savings in terms of energy bills, waste disposal costs, and potential penalties for non-compliance with environmental regulations.

Number 3: Improved Reputation

Training staff in green skills can improve a company’s reputation as a socially responsible business. It shows that the company is committed to sustainability and reducing its impact on the environment, which can enhance its brand image and appeal to environmentally conscious consumers.

Number 4: Compliance with Environmental Regulations

In many industries, companies are required to comply with environmental regulations and laws. By training staff in green skills, employers can ensure that their company is meeting these regulations and avoiding any penalties for non-compliance.

Number 5: Improved Employee Morale and Retention

Providing training in green skills can improve employee morale and job satisfaction, as employees may feel proud to work for a company that values sustainability and social responsibility. This can also increase employee retention, as employees may be more likely to stay with a company that aligns with their values and beliefs.
