Climate Action Leadership Training

Climate Action Leadership Training

World Business Leaders say that  ‘Climate Change is the No.1 threat to your organisation

Our trainers have been personally trained by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore in how to communicate the impacts, challenges and opportunities that are arising from a changing climate across your organisation.

The training sessions are engaging and interactive, in-person or online, with anonymous polling providing a safe space for participants to voice their viewpoints and discussion exercises to embed learning for actionable outcomes for leadership training requirements.

Typically, we provide half-day sessions to suit the audience size and content requirements (full-day and other options also available). These sessions will be of value to organisations wishing to accelerate their Climate Action planning and develop the skills capacity required to reduce the risks and exposure from a changing climate to your organisation.


Who should attend: Senior Management / Executive Level and Middle Management

Duration: Half-day or Full-day

“We collaborated with Sustineo to develop and deliver Climate Policy Awareness and Leadership Training to our senior managers. Feedback was very positive with many saying it motivated them to identify their specific challenges and think through the actions to design effective solutions. Since the training was delivered, the Climate Action Unit has seen significant interest in engaging with Department’s Climate Action Roadmap, with new actions emerging, designed to lead the education and research sector in Ireland. The training was very impactful.”
