T5S1 - L&D and sustainability

The speakers will also discuss best practices and success stories, and the challenges of engaging employees on environmental topics.
Moving L&D from passive observer of the green agenda to active contributor
If L&D’s work is about changing behaviour, then it surely has a role to play in sustainability. And as employers increasingly target net zero carbon emissions by 2030, it’s a role that matches many organisations’ strategic organisations.
In this session, we explore what L&D can do to support sustainability, from formal programmes to local interventions. From changing daily habits to the long-term environmental impact of life. And as green issues affect us all, so we’ll explore how L&D’s role gives it an unparalleled opportunity to lead on this important topic. We’ll explore how one company has invested in a masters programme for leaders, and how others are training employees in a range of interventions from basic awareness to green problem solving.
