Astutis launch new Online Environmental Skills Training
Inspired by recent statistics that more than 90 per cent of global-brand CEOs believe that a well-trained sustainability-conscious workforce was crucial to brand success, Astutis has taken the initiative to develop an eLearning option of the popular IEMA courses.
With 47% of internet users worldwide reporting they had ditched products and services from a brand that didn’t align with their values, the stakes to keep ahead in a competitive marketplace with strong green credentials have arguably never been higher. Consumers and businesses are, now more than ever, keen to deal with companies that not only have a corporate social responsibility policy but also demonstrably live and breathe it
Sarah Mukherjee, CEO of IEMA, said: “Enhancing the sustainability skills of the workforce is crucial in preparing businesses for the transition to a net-zero carbon and sustainable future. We’re delighted that Astutis is launching eLearning versions of the IEMA Environmental Sustainability Skills courses, offering a flexible approach to learning and boosting the capability of companies to capitalise on the opportunities.”
Steve Terry, MD of Astutis added: “Sustainability training is essential in today’s business and should be seen as an investment rather than a cost. The key to creating a vibrant and sustainable company is to find ways to get all employees—from top executives to assembly line workers—personally engaged in day-to-day corporate sustainability efforts. By investing in training, you are making sure that your business is kept up to date and has the best chance at environmental compliance and best practice. This in turn makes you a great option for your customers and keeps your workforce happy and engaged.”
