With the aim of helping organisations reach ambitious, albeit necessary, net zero targets Make UK have added a new offering to the already impressive portfolio of environmental training available.

Accredited by IEMA, the professional body for everyone working in environment and sustainability, Introduction to Net Zero has been added to our range of training solutions that are specifically designed to enhance skills and performance and futureproof organisations.

Make UK were one of the first training providers trusted by IEMA to deliver their net zero offerings and are the only provider of the IEMA Diploma in the world. Designed by our team of environmental experts, Introduction to Net Zero gives a succinct overview of what net zero means as a response to the climate crisis and how it can be delivered within organisations.

Net zero is a state in which the total greenhouse gases emitted are negated or offset by an equivalent amount of greenhouse gas removal.

In 2015, at the Conference of Parties (COP21) meeting in Paris, almost all the world’s nations came together – for the first time – to support a common strategy to cut greenhouse gas emissions. This universal, legally binding decision, known as The Paris Agreement, set out a framework to avoid dangerous climate change by attempting to limit global warming.

Following this, in 2019, the UK passed laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050 (UK becomes first major economy to pass net zero emissions law).

The UK’s 2050 net zero target — one of the most ambitious in the world — was recommended by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the UK’s independent climate advisory body (Climate Change Committee). According to the CCC the impacts and concerns surrounding climate change include; rising temperatures, reduced water supply and flooding. For many, net zero is a vital step that we need to take to protect our planet for the future.

Moving an organisation towards net zero will require investment, however, organisations with the ability to see change as an opportunity, not a threat, will drive innovation providing an advantage over competitors. Make UK members have seen their businesses become more efficient and resilient, whilst reducing costs (Share your Green Stories).

Available as an eLearning course, IEMA’s Introduction to Net Zero benefits from the recent improvements we have made to training accessed through this delivery method.

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, our Learner Management System (LMS) has recently been refreshed and the navigation improved. This benefits both learners as well as those with admin access, such as senior staff or HR, who are responsible for tracking learning.

Additionally, we have incorporated the latest techniques, from animation, to interactive slides and quizzes, to ensure we accommodate different learning styles thus improving engagement and subsequent pass rates.

Organisations wanting an honest and accurate strategic approach to environmental performance need to ensure understanding and commitment from the workforce. Suited to all job roles and sectors, Introduction to Net Zero introduces what net zero means, why it is so important and explains what individuals and organisations can do to help reach net zero targets. The course specifically covers ‘How should we communicate net zero in a way which avoids greenwash?’(What is greenwashing and how can you spot it? - BBC Newsround), a hot topic in the news at the moment.
