The Green Pathway - Our Journey to Net Zero
Welcome to the Kiwi Green Skills Hub!
This web page will offer employers and climate-conscious individuals the tools and resources they require to achieve their Net Zero aspirations.
Some of the information may change over time as more detail becomes available. As such, we will provide regular updates and use this space to announce changes to how we operate to ensure our organisation is as green as the courses we deliver.
For more information on how our Apprenticeships can support your business on its journey to achieving NetZero, contact our team of Business Development Managers on 023 8017 0380
How can we all make a difference?
We all have a part to play, and here at Kiwi Education, we’re continuously making changes to ensure we do just that. Every workplace has a responsibility to its team and the world around them.
We want to empower our learners and our employers with the skills & knowledge to drive sustainability efforts forward. Our job is to ensure our learners know how to do this for the good of their organisation and their customers.
Stage 1 – Having a Sustainability Champion in the Team
Flying the flag for Green Skills – Michael Steel’s journey to Antarctica! On the 1st of March 2023, Michael travelled to the 7th Continent to promote green skills while discovering more about the effects of climate change first-hand.

Stage 2 – Measure Impact & Minimising our Footprint
Kiwi’s Carbon Action Plan
Over the last two years, we have been developing plans and building on our past behaviours to ensure we are cutting down our carbon emissions and are much kinder to the planet. We have established which areas are most relevant to our stakeholders and us and created a carbon action plan which will be updated yearly.
We are measuring our impact and constantly monitoring our Progress to ensure we reach net zero by 2025.
Here we detail the results of our carbon footprint and actions so far.
Check out our latest blog posts to see the steps we are taking as a provider:
Upgrading vs Replacing
We contacted local tech and media companies and began sourcing our assets from refurbished products and upgraded items such as laptops we would typically donate.

Since Switching to DocuSign
As an organisation, we have already taken some small steps in Carbon Avoidance. Even before the Covid 19 pandemic, we moved all our paperwork and documents online. Since Switching to paperless, we have significantly impacted our carbon footprint.

Stage 3 – Promote Green Skills
We must ensure we educate tomorrow’s leaders to understand the importance of the climate crisis. Therefore, we consistently work with experts to provide various free resources, courses and apprenticeships to empower businesses with the skills, knowledge and behaviours for sustainability.
