Commercial Carbon Conversations is offered to groups of colleagues to explore behaviour change on both a personal and professional level.  Workplace Carbon Conversations are run by trained facilitators and incorporates elements of team building, collaborative action plans and experiential learning.  Commercial Carbon Conversations has been delivered to organisations such as Scottish Parliament, Buckinghamshire County Council, The Southern Cooperative and Brighton’s own Grace Eyre Foundation
 In 2015, BPEC worked with The Values and Sustainability Research Group at the University of Brighton to design an in-depth values-based analysis of the effectiveness of Commercial Carbon Conversations.  The results were overwhelmingly positive and provided a values-based assessment tool to compliment the Carbon Conversation sessions.
Because real, lasting behaviour change comes from a very personal place, sessions are held outside of the workplace setting to allow for deep engagement.  Real, lasting change also takes time and with this in mind, we will be offering  three training days on a one day a month basis for three consecutive months.  Outside of attending these three days, participants will need to spend 2-3 hours at a Values-based Indicators workshop within the workplace and approximately 1-2 hours a week over the duration of the course on reading the handbook and filling out worksheets alongside communicating with peer groups to keep the conversation going.
The groups are limited to a maximum of 10 participants from a cross section of the organisation.  The cost of Workplace Carbon Conversations is decided on a sliding scale.  Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
