Elearning lets you reduce your organization’s carbon footprint without sacrificing the quality of your training. In fact, a study by Britain’s Open University found that “producing and providing distance learning courses consumes an average of 90% less energy and produces 85% fewer CO2 emissions per student than conventional face-to-face courses.” How can you use elearning to save money and the environment at the same time?
Go paperless. Trade in those thick manuals and laminated guides for virtual, instant access to training and resources. Elearning means less production — paper and printing — which equals less waste and less impact on the environment. What’s more, when your content gets updated, you won’t need to spend your time and energy on reprinting and redistributing updated course materials. Your new content is available to learners with the click of a button.
Make it travel-free. Travel and lodging expenses are huge drains on many training programs—both financially and environmentally. Whether your learners are in Bangkok or Boston, elearning eliminates these huge contributors to greenhouse gases. Less travel also means less time away from work and fewer resources needed to make up for lost productivity.
We deliver it waste-free. In many cases, we’ll deliver your elearning via the web, directly to your learning management system, or on a handy reusable thumb drive.
Offset yourself. Consider offsetting your carbon emissions using one of the several programs available.
