MEET HEIDI YOUR TRAINER AND FACILITATOR

My background is in food policy, marketing, and food service. I’m also an enthusiastic Workshopper (AJ&Smart Sprint Method) – a great tool for aligning teams around prioritising challenges. My company Future Green consults with food businesses and runs a membership programme in Hong Kong, supporting over 50 members each month. I also have 5000+ hours of training and workshopping experience to ensure learning is an enjoyable and memorable experience.

In this group program, I’ll help you catalyse action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions both individually and in the workplace. All of this is helping to position you as a climate champion. And I can’t wait to show you how…

Meet Your Trainers

MEET Emma YOUR CO TRAINER AND FACILITATOR

During my 25-year career in the sustainability sector, I have gained invaluable experience working with businesses to understand, commit to, and achieve their climate goals.

I founded Lighthouse in 2020 to deliver impactful advice, coaching and training. I began to focus on Carbon Literacy as a tool to build capacity and empower employees in 2021 and have led the team to deliver more than 50 courses and train almost 700 learners to date. Some of those trained include leadership teams from Beko PLC, KBR Inc, Crown Worldwide, Turley and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Fund.

Increasing capacity in the training sector is something I am committed to as this is currently a bottleneck for supporting the population to access climate emergency training. Lighthouse’s recently developed and certified Carbon Literacy Train the Trainer course is testament to this.
