Why did you decide to do a business sustainability course? 

We received lots of enquiries from local businesses and setting out our own role in this across the myriad of services the authority provides. Ultimately, we wanted to increase the level of understanding of sustainability-related topics across our teams.

The course was incredibly relevant and timely. It required a small amount of time yet featured such high-quality content and all the latest information. I enjoyed the distance learning format and felt I got a lot of value from the course. All the lecturers were brilliant too.

What has been the impact of completing the course?

I have a greater understanding of key terminology and definitions under the sustainability umbrella which enables me to carry conversations about sustainability much easier.
