Become a Green Champion with Resource Efficient Scotland

Resource Efficient Scotland zero waste quango logoResource Efficient Scotland is calling on staff from organisations across Scotland to become a certified Green Champion through a new online training course.

Employees responsible for their organisation’s environmental performance can take advantage of a free training course which has already trained more than 180 Green Champions.

Rising raw material and utility costs, changing environmental regulations and increasing customer demands are putting pressure on companies to further improve their resource efficiency.

Resource Efficient Scotland is a Zero Waste Scotland programme designed to provide a one-stop-shop to help businesses reduce their energy, water and raw materials usage and has developed the training course to provide staff with the knowledge and tools to help them meet these challenges.  

It is aimed at training members of staff who have a responsibility for the environmental performance of their organisation including office managers, administrators, environment managers, health and safety personnel, purchasing teams, facilities managers, operations managers and other environment champions. The course provides the skills and knowledge to understand the benefits of resource efficiency, identify opportunities to save money on energy, water and materials, be able to collect and analyse data, and bring about change.

“Our online Green Champions training course gives Scottish organisations free access to nine short planning and practical modules,” said Marissa Lippiatt, Head of Resource Efficient Scotland. “They give staff the skills they need to reduce their use of energy and resources and save money.

“Green champions also have the opportunity to enhance their CV and receive a course completion certificate. More than 180 individuals from Scottish organisations have already completed the course.”
