One public sector organisation that we are aware of have set themselves the ambitious target of reducing their carbon footprint by 50% in 3 years.
It is already widely acknowledged that e-learning can deliver more training to more people for less money. How much does it cost to take your people from their day jobs and put them in a training room for a period of time? You lose productivity and may have to pay for temporary replacement staff, the trainer, training materials, travelling expenses, accommodation, catering, equipment and room hire.
Whilst we at kwango recognise that e-learning can never replace face to face training, minimising travelling, energy and material production costs through the judicious use of e-learning will also help to reduce your carbon footprint.
