SOLIHULL, UK. 2 July 2015 — Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies is pleased to announce it has joined CDP as the first accredited UK Education and Training Partner for 2015.  Having been a consultancy partner since 2013, GP Strategies will now support CDP further in its mission towards creating a sustainable global economy by providing organisations with training and learning programmes to implement and support their carbon management, climate impact and environmental strategies.

GP Strategies has vast experience and in depth understanding of market pressures, supply chain dynamics and corporate management. This places them in a unique position to be able to help organisations in the development and implementation of sustainability policies and procedures, providing full training needs analysis, design, delivery, implementation and assessment.

Marcus Norton, Chief Partnerships Officer at CDP, says: “we are delighted to welcome GP Strategies on board as an accredited provider of education and training services in the UK. CDP has long recognised the importance of high quality greenhouse gas and carbon management training for businesses trying to reduce their emissions and help prevent dangerous climate change. GP Strategies has an excellent range of both face-to-face and e-learning training solutions for all organisations.”

For over a decade CDP has worked with companies to drive action towards a more sustainable world. According to the latest research by CDP there are significant benefits and opportunities for companies who disclose their climate impact – with savings of over £33 billion ($53 billion USD) seen by organisations worldwide. Training and education around this helps support and develop strategies to encourage and support businesses to reduce vulnerability.

“The influence of stakeholder pressures is on the rise, giving organisations a more urgent need to assess their environmental practices,” states Mark Miller, Learning Solutions Director for GP Strategies. We have hands on experience implementing training programmes to support sustainable business practices and are looking forward to working with organisations aligned with CDP to provide training to support and drive this forward.”
