Trainer Directory

Why Use Trainers?

One of the key features of Carbon Literacy is that training is delivered by peers – pupil to pupil or by regular teachers in schools and colleges, by workmates, colleagues or peers in the workplace, or by friends and neighbours in the place you live.

However, sometimes this is not entirely possible on its own, and you and your organisation may need support or need external assistance to do this. There is, therefore, an expanding group of Carbon Literacy trainers who can assist you in the development and customisation of your Carbon Literacy training, or help you to deliver it.

You can contact these trainers and organisations directly from the directory below, or Contact Us if you would like further information.

CLCs – Individuals who have the most experience of developing and delivering multiple CL courses to a range of organisations.

CLTs – Individuals who have a breadth of CL training experience, most of whom have also developed a CL course.

CLFs – Individuals who help to deliver and administer CL courses within their organisation.

The individuals listed below are those who are certified to either CLT or CLC, and who are open to training opportunities.

James Cadman heads up Action Sustainability’s Consultancy team. He has worked in product sustainability and sustainable procurement for more 20 years, having worked at AEA Technology and ERM prior to Action Sustainability. James’ work is focused on understanding the sustainability impacts that products have through their life cycles and applying that to supply chain sustainability initiatives. He has led many projects on developing sustainable procurement policies, devising product standards and guidance, and undertaking carbon footprinting in order to improve product and market sustainability performance. Past clients include the likes of Network Rail, Unilever, Tesco, IKEA, Vodafone, and Defra.

With the ever-present push to drive carbon emissions down as we work towards net zero, James is active with consultancy clients in measuring carbon, developing strategic approaches to reduction, and implementing them. This is usually combined with delivering sustainable procurement outcomes. You will also often see and hear him deliver carbon training through the Supply Chain Sustainability School.

James was inspired to have a career in sustainability following the Bhopal and Exxon Valdez disasters, among other high-profile incidents, to the point of undertaking a PhD where he researched methods for removing industrial pollution from water. He has been passionate ever since about environmental issues and can often be found ‘urban guerrilla’ tree planting around Oxfordshire to make his own contribution to carbon sequestration. And when he’s not planting trees he enjoys growing veg at his allotment – all local, organic and fair trade!

Annie has always been passionate about the environment. She first became aware of the fragility of our planet from hearing news reports as a child of the ’80s, watching the destruction of the rainforests, the devastating oil spills and the hole in the ozone layer. This spurred her to gain an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science from the University of Leeds and a Master’s in Conservation Biology from Manchester Metropolitan University. She’s led ecologically-focussed projects in Africa, won awards at a climate change solution competition at MIT University, consulted for the World Bank, and contributed to the IUCN’s Red List, an inventory of the global conservation status of biological species at the Institute of Zoology. She is currently eco-renovating her house, chairing a local climate action group, a spokesperson for a divestment campaign and the climate champion of her hometown. She established The Sustainable Life Coach to empower others to become eco-confident in their lifestyles and businesses through Carbon Literacy training, Coaching and Net Zero accelerator programmes.
