Sponsorship Opportunities

The Carbon Literacy Project is a unique transformative action programme, on a mission to offer everyone a day’s worth of Carbon Literacy learning. We want everyone to have the chance to make more informed decisions in their lives and in their organisations.

We are seeking sponsors, as we rely on the generous support of organisations like yours to extend our reach and impact. We are seeking to deliver more vital Carbon Literacy training and to expand the impact of our work. With your support, we can make this a reality.

By offering your support, you will be making a real difference. Sponsoring and partnering with The Carbon Literacy Project is a positive and tangible way of enhancing your corporate social responsibility aims and is a positive demonstration of your organisation’s intentions to tackle carbon reduction and work towards a zero-carbon future.

2022 marks the 10-year anniversary of The Carbon Literacy Project.

To mark the occasion, we’re running the Carbon Literacy 10 for 10 Accelerator, where we’re aiming to raise £250,000 – the equivalent of £10 per learner certified at the beginning of the year.

All donations made, via all channels, throughout 2022 will count towards 10 for 10!

Can you help us in our final push to achieve our goal?
