  1. What are the goals of your sustainability training program?

Before you begin building your sustainability training program, let's start with something simple. It is essential to have a clear understanding of what you hope to achieve. Are you looking to reduce your carbon footprint, improve your waste management practices, or something else entirely? Having a clear understanding of your goals will help you determine the best course of action and ensure that your sustainability training program is tailored to meet your specific needs.

2. Who is your target audience?

The next step in building a successful sustainability training program is to identify your target audience. Are you training employees in your sustainability department, or are you looking to educate all employees across the company? Understanding your target audience will help you tailor your training program to their specific needs and ensure that it resonates with them.

3. What is the best format for delivering your sustainability training?

There are many different formats for delivering sustainability training, including online courses, in-person workshops, and blended learning programs. When selecting the best format for your sustainability training program, consider your target audience, the goals of your program, and the resources you have available.

4. How will you measure the success of your sustainability training program?

Measuring the success of your sustainability training program is critical to ensuring that it is having the desired impact. Consider how you will track the progress of your employees, how you will measure the impact of your program on the environment, and what metrics you will use to evaluate the success of your program.

5. How will you incorporate sustainability training into your ongoing operations?

Finally, it is essential to think about how you will incorporate sustainability training into your ongoing operations. Consider how you will integrate sustainability practices into your day-to-day operations, how you will ensure that employees continue to engage with sustainability training even after the program has ended, and how you will ensure that sustainability training remains a top priority for your company.

That's it, hopefully, you're on your way to constructing a great sustainability training program in your business!

To recap

Creating a successful sustainability training program requires careful consideration of your goals, target audience, and delivery format.
