The Carbon Literacy Project (CLP) aims to enable action to reduce carbon emission through learning, supporting individuals to identify and reduce the carbon impacts of their daily activities. With guidance from CLP, organisations can create their own accredited training course, either for colleagues or individuals.

Carbon literate individuals will also have the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.
