As the lead trainer for a company, there are several suggestions that one might make so as to create an organization-wide commitment to sustainability.

If the company were responsible for the manufacture of any tangible products, one might try to make sure that the company is doing everything they can to ensure that those products are made, as far as possible, from recyclable materials.

If the company were responsible for producing any pollution, such as, for example, any carbon dioxide produced by transporting goods from one place to another, then one might also try to ensure that the company planted trees to offset that pollution.

One could also encourage any staff employed by the company to, where possible, share rides to and from work. This would also cut down on pollution indirectly caused by the company.

If there were any office spaces used by the company, one could try to encourage, again as far as possible, a paperless environment. Any files that needed to be kept could, for example, be easily and probably more securely kept online.

One of the biggest causes of greenhouse gas emissions is the intensive rearing of livestock. Therefore, as a lead trainer, one might also try to implement incentives for the company staff to eat less meat. This might be achieved, for example, by subsidizing the meat-free options in any staff canteen, so that any employees would be financially incentivized to eat meat-free options.
