Decarbonisation training is offered by a new Net Zero School that aims to help organisations establish and meet sustainability targets.
AXA Climate and Blunomy’s new Net Zero School provides decarbonisation training and concrete insights on how sectors can concretely decarbonise beyond Net Zero commitments.
Decarbonisation pathways will be different from one sector to another, however, and it is critical to understand the carbon reduction potentials of each sector to accelerate their change. Through the Net Zero School training, knowledge workers across services companies can understand the decarbonisation challenges of some of the most CO2 intensive sectors including oil & gas, power, agri-food, road transportation, and cement.
The curriculum has been specifically curated to help professional services companies understand the carbon footprint of the major industries they work with, and more importantly the actionable decarbonisation levers. Candidates for taking the course include regulators, financial institutions, insurance companies and management consultancies, and other services providers.
Teams completing Net Zero School will fully understand what’s at stake and why the sector their clients work in needs to decarbonise (including climate risks); appreciate how the different economic sector can transition (technology, business models) and get examples on transition strategies corporate market players could adopt to build resilient, but fully sustainable, business models.
With interactive courses, The Net Zero School mixes theoretical concepts with concrete examples of decarbonisation issues of each studied sector. It details the opportunities of the transition, the current obstacles, and takes examples of companies that are front runners or those that are lagging. Finally, Net Zero School examines the good practices but also the areas where it will be more difficult to decarbonise. The objective of this training is to give companies the right tools to better understand the transition of each sector to help their entire value chain to decarbonise.
“With our first training offer, The Climate School, we were talking about sustainable transformation internally but many organisations, especially financial services companies, needed to understand the trends of sustainable transformation for their clients and for the whole economy,” said Antoine Poincaré, AXA Climate School President.
“The task was immense, which is why we joined forces with Blunomy, which has been working on various sectors of the real economy for years. The result is very concrete, so we can answer questions people have right now, such as ‘Are oil extraction professionals well placed to work in offshore wind? Which players in the agri-food industry can invest in biomass energy production?’ and so on.”
