Advanced Level

All organisations are coming under increasing pressure from legislators, cost pressures, employees and customers to improve their environmental performance. The Green Academy is an on-line training resource which provides cost-effective, time efficient and low carbon personal development service to professionals who want to green their organisation, with a particular focus on business.

The Advanced Level will help you take sustainability to the level where your company is gaining clear competitive advantage from your efforts. It is aimed at medium and large businesses.

If you are a newcomer to sustainability, check out our Introductory level first.
Your Tutor
Gareth Kane is a leading sustainability practitioner. In his 13 years in the environmental sector he has worked with hundreds of organisations to improve their environmental performance and has trained thousands of people in how to do it. He has written two books on the subject: The Three Secrets of Green Business and The Green Executive, both published by Earthscan.
How It Works
We use webinar technology to deliver the modules. A webinar is an online seminar where you will see Powerpoint slides on your computer and listen/contribute either by phone or via the computer. This means you can take part without having to take time out of the office – and it’s low carbon too as you don’t have to travel.

Before each session, we will send you a workbook with which you will be able to apply the learning to your organisation. We never ask you to reveal what you have written in your workbook to the rest of the group.
We hold one session each month, except August and January, usually on the first Wednesday at 2pm GMT/BST. The sessions are designed to be stand alone, so you can join in at any point in the cycle. The contents of each session can be seen below.
Course fees
The four modules are £45.00 + VAT each or £330.00 + VAT for the set of ten.
