New sustainability training course launched

Andy SheppardA new course which could help firms in East Midlands win business, reduce energy costs and avoid prosecution, is now being delivered by Chesterfield-based training provider NLT Training Services.

Following accreditation by the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA), NLT has been announced as the sole training provider in the East Midlands and Humberside for the Level 2 Working with Environmental Sustainability course.

NLT’s accreditation is being hailed as a significant step forward in helping businesses in the area understand one of the most talked about and urgent issues affecting the planet - sustainability.

The course could prove vital in winning bids for tenders and can reduce the risk of fines and prosecutions.

The one-day course covers everything from sustainable buildings to design and operations across all industry sectors, providing a practical introduction to Environmental Sustainability, equipping delegates with the knowledge, understanding, and motivation to make a positive difference within their organisation.

Andy Sheppard, Chief Executive of NLT said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer this course and anticipate high demand for it. It represents a big step forward for sustainability issues amongst businesses in the region.

“Companies cannot afford to ignore sustainability any longer; it is top of the Government’s agenda, having been announced in the recent Budget that it is pushing for a global climate deal that keeps the goal of limiting global warming to two degrees.

“I would urge businesses now to begin embedding environmental sustainability not only into the fabric of the company but also job roles within it; the Level 2 Working with Environmental Sustainability course will enable them to do that.”

NLT Training Services operates from sites in Chesterfield and Scunthorpe. It is a specialist trainer and provider of apprentices in welding, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering as well as industry-leading commercial training courses.

The new course is being held on 24 August at NLT’s Chesterfield offices and on 26 August at the training provider’s Scunthorpe site.
