Greenhouse gas consultancy project
Greenhouse Gas Consultancy Project
Winner of The Guardian University Award 2015 in Business Partnership, the Greenhouse Gas Consultancy Project is an example of innovative course delivery, in partnership with industry, to surprise and challenge students and benefit the organisations with whom we and they work.
Nottingham Business School and Investors in the Environment Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire combine leading-edge knowledge of current environmental technologies with practical application across different sectors, working in a ‘live’ project context. Students are trained in environmental management and, as part of their core curriculum, gain direct experience serving as consultants with local businesses and public bodies to advise on the reduction of environmental impact and assist in achievement of Investor in the Environment (iiE) accreditation. In 2014 thirty two local business and organisations participated in the project, including public bodies such as four local Clinical Commissioning Groups and Broxtowe Borough Council. SMEs were supported through the University’s Future Factory project, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
To be involved in the project as a business, public body, or academic institution, or for more information about the work contact Dr Petra Molthan-Hill.Read more case studies
