Climate Emergency UK

Dear North Warwickshire Borough Council,

Please treat this as a Freedom of Information/Environmental Information Regulations request.

I would like information about your council’s carbon literacy training in relation to climate action for the Council Climate Action Scorecards. This information may be held by the HR department or other departments that organise staff training.

In particular, please supply me with information relating to the following questions:

a. Have all senior management received carbon literacy training or equivalent since 1st January 2019? Please state the type of training.

b. Have all current councillors in the cabinet or committee chairs received carbon literacy training or equivalent since being elected? Please state the type of training.

This training could be from the Carbon Literacy Organisation or another organisation, university or in-house. We want to know the number of people who have attended the training. We don’t need to know the number of staff that have received a certificate of completion or attendance.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,
Hannah Jewell, Climate Emergency UK

Kerry Drakeley, North Warwickshire Borough Council
