Call For Applications: CLO Awards 2019

November 2018 by Emma Richards

Key Information

The Next CLO Award Ceremony: March 2019 (Details TBC)
Deadline for CLO Applications: 6 pm Friday 8th February 2019

In March 2019 we will be holding our second Carbon Literacy Awards! We are aligning the awards with the Greater Manchester (GM) Green Summit in support of GM’s ‘zero carbon by 2038’ aim. Engaging with Carbon Literacy and becoming a Carbon Literate Organisation (CLO) is a fantastic way for organisations to accelerate their climate-change action, show their commitment to the low carbon agenda, and help reach GM’s shared goal.

Whether you’re based in Greater Manchester or further afield, have been rolling out Carbon Literacy for years or only just come across it, a rapid shift to zero carbon is what the science requires of every person, product, and organisation. So start 2019 as you mean to go on, and use Carbon Literacy to bring about a low carbon culture for your people. Contact us by email – info@carbonliteracy.com or by phone – 0161 298 1782 and we can help and advise you on the most effective ways to accredit your people and organisation.

To make the deadline for the next wave of Carbon Literate Organisation accreditations, applications must be complete and submitted to The Project, with the appropriate fee, by 6 pm on Friday 8th February 2019.

About CLO

The Project developed the Carbon Literate Organisation (CLO) accreditation to offer organisations a visible ‘badge’ that showcases them as committed to Carbon Literacy, having a substantial number of people who are Carbon Literate, as well as having a commitment to support their Carbon Literate people and maintain their low carbon culture.

How to Apply

If your organisation is interested in becoming accredited as a Carbon Literate Organisation, please follow the link to our downloadable application forms for more information on how to apply and fees.

A friendly note

Please note that late applications cannot be guaranteed a place at the Awards Ceremony (due to the lead time required to have your custom-made CLO trophy manufactured from recycled wood, by our lovely supplier – it’s out of our control!). Please apply nice and early and we’ll be in a much better position to assist you. 🙂
