Course Introduction

Resource efficiency means to conserve natural resources, such as fossil fuels and freshwater, by only using what is needed.

The course outlines ways you can use electricity, water and fuel more efficiently and why organisations and individuals should care to take action.

This Resource Efficiency Online Training course takes on average 30 minutes to complete.

Course Content

Global warming and climate change caused by various human activities are harming the environment and our health. But our activities are also having other direct and indirect effects on our planet. Land, air and water pollution are damaging biodiversity and causing diseases and ill health.

Our consumption of natural resources is threatening to outpace supply, leading to water, food and energy shortages, as well as disrupting the fragile ecosystems on which we depend. As organisations and individuals, we need to make changes to preserve our ecosystems and resources, and to reduce our production of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.

The waste hierarchy lists the preferred steps for how to manage waste so that waste can be prevented and diverted from landfills where it emits pollution. Following the waste hierarchy also helps us achieve a circular economy where we make the most of the resources we produce and use, and then recycle them for reuse.

Understanding the importance of waste management and how to achieve a circular economy can help reduce our negative impact and protect the environment from harm. Making changes in our daily lives can lead to better, healthier lives for all living species.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Resource Efficiency course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures  developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost
