Environmental Awareness Training

Welcome to the Environmental Awareness Training course. This course is the first step in creating an eco-friendly work environment, and to be aware of how your workplace affects the environment and what you can do to prevent it.

This environmental awareness training course explores the ways in which organisations can become aware of their impact on environmental issues and how they can reduce it.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Climate Change.
  • Emissions.
  • Waste management.
  • Pollution.

This course is for employees of local councils and construction and development firms, as well as those who are interested in the latest industry information.

The course covers the basic requirements for environmental protection and management under state and Commonwealth laws.

By enrolling in this course, you will not only enhance your own environmental consciousness but also learn practical ways to reduce your carbon footprint, conserve resources, and advocate for sustainable practices.

Background – How to reduce your Environmental Footprint?

According to the United Nations, more than 400 million tonnes of plastic is produced each year. Less than 10% of that is recycled.

In the United States, between 19 and 23 million tonnes of plastic is disposed in rivers, lakes and oceans each year. This is roughly the weight of 2,200 Eiffel Towers.

Microplastics, tiny plastic particles as small as 5mm diameter, find their way to food and water. Each person consumes over 50,000 plastic particles each year.

Single-use plastics that are thrown away or burned harm human health, biodiversity, and every ecosystem on the planet.

Governments, companies, and other stakeholders need to accelerate their efforts to resolve this crisis, based on the available science and solutions.

This highlights the importance of this World Environment Day which is held annually on the 5th of June to mobilise transformative actions from all corners of the globe.

Any individual, regardless of their background or lifestyle, can adopt practical strategies to reduce their environmental footprint. 

This course provides participants with actionable steps they can take to minimise waste, conserve energy, and promote sustainable practices in their everyday routines. 

From simple changes like using reusable water bottles to more significant commitments like composting and supporting eco-friendly businesses, there are a variety of ways individuals can make a positive impact on the planet.

On this course, participants will learn about various practical strategies for reducing their environmental footprint, such as reducing energy consumption, minimising waste production, and supporting sustainable businesses. 

By incorporating these strategies into their daily lives, individuals can contribute to overall environmental conservation efforts and help create a more sustainable future for our planet.

Understanding the importance of reducing our environmental footprint is crucial in mitigating the harmful effects of climate change and preserving the Earth's natural resources for future generations. 

By implementing practical strategies and adopting an eco-friendly mindset, individuals have the power to make a significant and positive impact on the planet, one choice at a time.

Promoting Environmental Responsibility in the Workplace

Every action we take contributes to our carbon footprint on the earth. The climate is changing rapidly as the planet gets hotter. 

We can slow global warming by reducing the amount of harmful greenhouse gasses and aiming for a lower carbon footprint.

We can all make a difference by changing our behaviour. 

As an example:

  • Being water smart.
  • Air conditioning and heating: How to be efficient?
  • Use energy-efficient lighting.
  • Recycling: What and how we recycle.
  • Reduce your food footprint.

We can make a real difference by encouraging our employers to be more socially and environmentally conscious. 

You can, for example:

  • Lease offices in high-energy-efficiency buildings.
  • Go Paperless.
  • Reduce air travel by using remote working solutions.

Aims and Objectives of this course

  • To encourage the students and other social groups to acquire knowledge of pollution and environmental degradation. 
  • Students and other groups should be made aware of the problems that the environment faces and encouraged to develop a sense of sensitivity. 
  • Students and other social groups will have the opportunity to actively participate in environmental protection. 
  • Make the environment cleaner and greener, both for current generations as well as those to come. 
  • To make the people around you aware of the rapid depletion of natural resources, and to encourage them to contribute towards their conservation.

What will you learn by completing the training course?

  • Be aware of the purpose and objectives of environmental legislation.
  • Understanding the practical requirements for environmental legislation.
  • Understanding the consequences of non-compliance with environmental legislation.
  • Understanding the benefits of moving beyond compliance is important.

How Is the Training Delivered?

Environmental Awareness training course is available online and completed in your own time. 

This Environmental Awareness training course is based on the learning outcomes outlined above.

The course is typically designed to be completed in a minimum of four hours. However, the exact length of the course may depend on your ability and prior knowledge of the subject.

What Accreditation Will You Get?

After completing the Environmental Awareness course, an assessment is conducted to determine if you have understood the information presented during the training course. If you pass this assessment, you receive a Certificate of Completion.
