WWF's Emission Possible
Following on from their success with a personal carbon footprint calculator (which allows users to calculate estimates of their yearly personal carbon footprints) the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have produced a simple guide to support companies through emission reporting. If you are interested in understanding your organisation's emissions better, this could be a really useful tool. Equally, as a CL trainer, have a look at this is a brilliant training resource.
Take a look at the Emission Possible guide here.
We're very lucky to have a fantastic team of volunteers working with us at The Project. They help us to continue to grow and certify more learners every day, and in return, they get relevant workplace skills and experience, both within the sustainability sector, and more generally. We now have the opportunity to recruit a small number of new volunteers. We need a wide range of skills and experience for different tasks and from different people, and these include: administrative support, IT database and web skills, desktop publishing, graphics, and more. Interested?

CL Public Sector Newsletters Launch
As our range of public sector toolkits expand, it makes sense to have sector specific newsletters. The first to launch are the Local Authorities Newsletter, and the Universities & Colleges Newsletter. Each contains low-carbon and Carbon Literacy information, resources, and advice, specially formulated for the sector.
If you would like to subscribe to either, you can do so here for Local Authorities, and here for Universities & Colleges.
