This free 8-hour training course will provide you the knowledge and skills to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. You can choose whether to attend an in-person or online course, and the training is accredited by the Carbon Literacy Project, you can book a place on the course on our website.

Green Solutions delivered by Staffordshire County Council is funded by Stafford Borough Council, South Staffs District Council, East Staffordshire District Council using UK Shared Prosperity Fund, and in association with the Pilot Business Energy Advice Service (BEAS) funded by the Department for Energy Security and Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.
