While we at CIET believe that Energy efficiency is by far the fastest, easiest and most logical way to fight climate change, WWF Canada has suggestions for private enterprises. In a recently produced video, they are suggesting five other measures that businesses should incorporate into their practices and policies.
This past Wednesday, WWF Canada hosted a viewing party for the documentary film that they produced entitled Our Planet: Our Business. Utilizing amazing footage from the Our Planet series (which has been available for a few years on Netflix), WWF Canada has produced a new video that suggests a series of 5 actions businesses can integrate into their thinking to help mitigate climate change and restore balance to the world’s Ecosystems. These actions include:
1. Get to Zero Carbon
2. Minimize the space we use
3. Return the ocean to good health
4. Eliminate waste
5. Reimagine success
At the request of Megan Leslie, WWF Canada’s CEO, we wanted to share this video with you too, so that it may inspire creative ideas as to how we can address climate change – both as individuals and as organisations.
Send us an email and we will respond as soon as possible.
Important COVID-19 Update for CIET Spring 2020 Training Calendar – CIET Goes Virtual!
Last Updated: March 24, 2020, 09:20am
The entire CIET team has been working hard recently to provide new training options for you through virtual real-time classrooms considering the current situation. This will allow everyone to continue accessing CIET training in a safe manner, which protects both our participants and our trainers. You can register for these virtual courses in confidence, knowing that they will provide the same quality of training that you expect from CIET. These real-time training sessions will be available to all participants across Canada.
REGISTER FOR VIRTUAL TRAINING TODAY: You can view all these virtual training courses on our calendar!
For now, CIET has taken the decision to defer all in-class courses which cannot be offered virtually, scheduled before June 15, 2020.
If you are NOT registered to a course yet:
We are still taking registrations for all courses (deferred and virtual) and will communicate with registered participants to a deferred course when it becomes possible to offer the training again in person.
Cancellation policy: Should you wish to cancel later, we’ve suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately. This suspension will be effective for all registrations made prior to, at least, April 30, 2020.
If you ARE registered to a deferred course:
Courses offered before June 15, 2020, which cannot be offered virtually, are currently deferred.
For now, we propose keeping the registrations of all participants active and informing you of: (1) new dates as they become possible/available; and (2) our new fall 2020 training dates, which should be announced in May-June. Your registration and payment could then be applied, without additional fees, to any new training session.
Should you still wish to cancel, we’ve suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately.
Through all these measures, CIET hopes to provide as much flexibility as possible to training participants while respecting its commitments to other participants, trainers and partners, as well as public health recommendations.
We thank you very much for your trust and collaboration and look forward to welcoming you soon with an elbow bump!
The CIET Team
