Programme overview

Online Sustainability Pass™ 

Please note: 50% Funding extends to bookings made before the end June only

Sustainability Pass is aimed at raising staff awareness and does so by introducing the core elements of sustainability and covering topics such as: energy, water, waste, biodiversity and global citizenship. Each topic introduces the key challenges along with practical advice on how to make cost savings and contribute to more sustainable practices at home and at work.

The training programme is delivered online and can be accessed from any device at any time. Topics are broken into six short ‘bite-sized’ sessions (approximately 10 minutes each) allowing greater flexibility for the learner to complete in their own time.


  • Demonstrates commitment to SDGs and other national sustainability initiatives (Origin Green, EPA, SEAI)
  • Contributes to enhanced resource efficiency and reduced costs at the site
  • Underpins long term behavioural change initiatives at member sites
  • Engages all employees in meeting energy, water and waste management goals
  • Demonstrates commitment to staff development in sustainability as part of ethical audits, ISO50001, etc.
