CARBON LITERACY FOR THE
FOOD SECTOR

FOR FOOD SERVICES, RETAILERS AND MANUFACTURERS

EVERYONE EVERYWHERE NEEDS TO BE CARBON LITERATE. IT JUST TAKES ONE DAY

The Carbon Literacy Project is a transformative initiative that equips individuals and organisations with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to take meaningful action in the fight against climate change, fostering a sustainable and resilient future for all.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

SOUND FAMILIAR?

  • You don’t know how to speak confidently about food and climate change.
  • You are not sure what climate change has to do with your industry.
  • You want to take action but don’t know where to start.

IMAGINE HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO…

  • To start conversations about climate change with friends and colleagues in an informed way.
  • Promote a confident workforce with alignment to company net zero plans. Offer quality education to underserved learners without physical presence.
  • Take an online course to contribute to a low-carbon economy. Save on commuting and accommodation costs, making climate change education more affordable. 

“It’s my second workshop with Future Green and one may think there might be a bit of repetition – but no, the team constantly refresh their content, keep things up to date and interesting with new activities. Engaging, informative and insightful as always.” – Samantha Chung, B Lab HK & Macau (Growth and Activation Lead)

What’s special about our course? MODULES

What modules are included?

Module 1 – Nature, Climate and Society

The Carbon Literacy Shareable Food Course looks at the broader sustainability picture of the food system using the Planetary Boundaries model. Climate change impacts and solutions are explored alongside areas such as biodiversity loss and land-use change.

Module 2 – The Power of Personal Change

A short section on personal carbon footprints allows employees to understand their opportunities to make sustainable choices, see how this relates to healthy diets, and then extend this awareness to discussions and collaboration around organisational goals.

Module 3 – Farming for our Future

Module 3 looks at agricultural practices. For many in the food and hospitality sector, there has been a tendency to focus on reducing emissions in their own operations, covering scopes 1 and 2. Whilst this reduction is an essential part of a comprehensive net-zero plan, when we look at the full footprint of an organisation, land use and on-farm emissions represent the most significant opportunity for companies to play their part in reaching net zero.

Module 4 – the Environment is our Business

Module 4 looks at key business themes from the Science Based Targets Initiative, to emissions scopes and gives employees the opportunity to select, discuss and brainstorm ideas around the organisation’s carbon hotspots.

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 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.

Carbon Literacy is an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions on an individual, community and organisation basis. It is the knowledge and capacity required to create a positive shift in how mankind lives, works, and behaves in response to climate change.
