The Climate School

Equipping teams for a sustainable future

The Climate School, powered by Kite Insights, is a sustainability education programme that equips employees with the knowledge, motivation and tools to transform organisations for a climate-friendly future – no matter what industry you’re in or where you are in the world.

Transform your organisation and reach your climate goals

The necessity for organisations to make a sustainable shift has never been more urgent. Every job will be a climate job and employees want to see their employers taking stronger climate action.

Future climate champions exist in every company today. Businesses that rapidly upskill their talent to power the green transformation will thrive. 

“21% of employees said that they had considered changing jobs in order to work more closely on climate-related issues...”


Upskill employees and improve staff retention

Climate change education empowers employees and provides new skills and knowledge to work more confidently across all areas of their role. Personal development opportunities that include specific action on climate change are increasingly sought out by employees when choosing where to work and develop in their careers.

Evidence has shown that having environmental goals for a business leads to improved:

  • Employee engagement: 70% of employees are interested in training related to climate action at work.
  • Job satisfaction: 61% of employees feel company climate action is important to their job satisfaction.
  • Staff retention: 15% have considered changing jobs in order to work more closely on climate-related issues.

Setting up your business for the upcoming change now means reaping rewards in the future.

How do I encourage employees to sign up? We provide a communications pack for you to use across your internal channels to generate interest and sign-ups to each session. We can also support with ongoing communications to keep employees engaged.
Does the whole organisation need to participate? No, the whole organisation does not need to participate. We encourage as many enthusiastic and eager employees willing to take part, but one spokesperson who can influence the team is just as valuable.
Which organisations have already worked with The Climate School? Corporations such as PWC, Microsoft, Cemex, Schneider and Virgin have already attended the Climate School. View their testimonials above.
Who set up The Climate School?

The Climate School is set up by Kite InsightsTM – a research and strategic communications agency. We think businesses have an urgent responsibility to society and the power to effect global change. But when the debates on global issues are so noisy, it’s hard for them to adopt a credible stance and contribute meaningfully to progress.

The Climate School, powered by Kite, prepares organisations for the green economy by upskilling employees across all professional roles. With an evidence base built up over eight years of data research, polling and deep insights, we are uniquely placed to offer this initiative for businesses and their people to embrace the systems transformation needed to tackle climate change.

Does The Climate School help businesses with corporate social responsibility?

While corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a term that is often insubstantially thrown around, the principles of CSR – integrating social and environmental concerns in business operations – align with the purpose of The Climate School.

Our aim is to encourage businesses in all industries to shift their goals towards something more environmentally focused, and empower the employees to equip themselves with the knowledge to do this.

What makes The Climate School different is that our approach is science-based and backed by research and evidence. Our courses are shaped by advisors who are experts in their fields and therefore actions from the learning are substantiated.
