TOPICS COVERED

The Green Teams programme covers a range of topics, from technical, managing teams and getting fellow staff on board, not forgetting ‘greening yourself’ – hover the icons on the left.

The training programme is presented through a number of modules starting with an initial introduction to Sustainability. The basic technical concepts and quick wins for the more technical themes are then presented – energy, water, waste and transport. The main aspects of running green teams effectively are also addressed, followed by getting fellow staff engaged.

Finally, participants are supported to carry out a team project on a sustainability issue in the workplace.

The Green Teams National Programme (GTNP) was initially funded through the Green Enterprise programme of the Environmental Protection Agency. The GTNP is delivered by Waterford Institute of Technology and Consulteco environmental consultants.
