Northwards Housing – Platinum CLO

Since the training has been completed our Green Energy Advisor has been inundated with requests from our teams to provide energy advice to our tenants”.

Based on the commitments the staff made during the training, the estimated carbon saving is 77 tonnes CO2”.


Dock 10 – Gold CLO

“Energy consumption peaked in 2014 and has been steadily falling since. This has been achieved by behaviour change activities such as Carbon Literacy, and also through activities such as reducing the light levels in the corridor, and using the cool water from the Combined Heat and Power plant instead of using water from the chillers”.


 Jacobs Manchester – Silver CLO

Jacobs is monitoring staff pledges and have noted “significant behavioural and lifestyle changes”.

  “A great opportunity to embed sustainability into work; whether this was through design, procurement or strategic choice”.


Great Places Housing – Gold CLO

“We were looking for a training course that would ensure all staff received the same level of environmental understanding, for a reasonable cost. Carbon Literacy seemed to fit these criteria perfectly”.

“Feedback [for Carbon Literacy training] was incredibly positive, with people making actions in their personal and work life in order to reduce their carbon emissions”.


ITV Studios – Silver CLO

 “The training empowered [staff] to engage more readily with our sustainable business model and made a big impact on the team”.

“As a result of the training, this work has in itself become sustainable, with people taking ownership of their own responsibilities towards climate change both in and out of work”.


New Charter Group – Silver CLO

“It’s really encouraging that since the training a lot of people are talking about reducing their carbon footprint, and two people have told us that they have made the decision to change their cars off the back of the training”.


BBC – Bronze CLO
