Access affordable environmental training for your business


Katie Greenhalgh, Environmental Consultant for iiE Consultancy, explains how you can access affordable environmental training for your business.

I’m really pleased to let everyone know about a new partnership between the not-for-profit Investors in the Environment Consultancy and Cloud Sustainability. Cloud Sustainability is a leading provider of online training courses and sustainability services and we are now able to offer these at a discounted rate to our business clients.

iiE Consultancy is offering a range of eLearning courses as a cost effective way to develop your or your team’s environmental knowledge at a pace and location that suits you. The majority of courses are certified and cover waste management, energy management, environmental management systems, sustainable procurement, corporate social responsibility and more.

Through the partnership, we are able to offer our businesses 5% off the RRP of most courses and further discounts are available for those businesses wanting to bulk buy courses to train a number of staff. To receive your iiE discount, just remember to enter “iiE5%” when prompted on checkout when you have chosen your course at

Training is a vital component of any sustainable organisation, with training records required by many Environmental Management System standards such as ISO14001. Training ensures that staff members have an understanding of environmental topics and can apply these in a business setting – often people don’t think twice about recycling and saving energy at home but when they come to work it’s a different story!

We love the fact that the courses are all online too – less travel means more efficient use of staff time, reduced transport costs and a reduced carbon footprint – extra points in your business travel plan and sustainability strategy!
