WORLD OF LEARNING CONFERENCE – SUPPORTING AND ENCOURAGING CARBON NEUTRALITY IN TRAINING
· Conference programme to examine learning and development’s role in carbon footprint reduction
· Delegates to take part in The Woodland Trust’s ‘Dedicate-a-tree’ scheme
The role of learning and development in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and carbon footprint reduction is one of the highly topical issues being addressed at this year’s World of Learning Conference, which takes place on 14 & 15 November 2007 at the NEC, Birmingham.
On day one of the Conference, Cathy Ham, General Manager at BT Conferencing, will offer practical steps to reduce the environmental impact of training. Delegates will be asked to consider how ‘green’ their training is and be given realistic guidelines on utilising resources to make a positive impact.
In addition, Cathy will be discussing how organisations can create an environmentally-conscious workforce and communicate CSR policies through learning and development.
Furthermore, the event organisers are for the first time taking part in The Woodland Trust’s ‘Dedicate a Tree’ scheme. Each delegate to the Conference will have a tree planted in their name within a dedicated UK forest project, to help reduce the travel and venue carbon emissions generated by the event. They will also receive a ‘Dedicate a Tree’ gift pack including a certificate and map of the chosen forest indicating where their tree is planted.
Alison Church, Conference Manager, said: “Learning and development professionals can make a valuable contribution to their organisations through the introduction of practices which will limit the environmental impact of training. Delegates to the conference will leave the event with vital information on how they can make a positive impact.”
