Join Inspiration Space and Lighthouse Sustainability for our in-person Carbon Literacy Training. 


Carbon Literacy underpins everything from marketing to finance, HR, and so much more. Turn theory into action quickly with our hands-on approach.

Did you know? With the EU Corporate Sustainability Directive in full effect, 97% of top executives and investors expect climate change to impact company strategy and operations. Greenwashing rules are getting stricter while extreme weather poses a threat to shipping and assets.

As new regulations and changing customer expectations accelerate, understanding the science behind net-zero and sustainability is no longer a nice to have - it's commercial self-defense. Prepare for the future, today.

✅ Learn how to measure your emissions at home and work.

✅ Learn to identify and avoid misinformation and greenwashing.

✅ Gain the knowledge you need to create a science-based climate action plan.

✅ Feel empowered to reduce emissions, save money and create a competitive advantage.

✅ Upon successful completion of the course you receive certification from the Carbon Literacy Project.*
