The time to be bold is NOW

Sometimes fixing the future can feel a little lonely! But not when you join a WorkForClimate Cohort program.

Being part of an online cohort gives you access to industry experts in both climate and organisational change who’ll provide you with tailored advice to help your company achieve their climate goals faster.

You’ll also build relationships with other like-minded corporate professionals who share your goal. Each week, you’ll have the chance to share insights, ask questions and learn from each others’ experiences and specialist advice in real-time.

What you can expect

This Cohort program runs over 10 weeks, with 2 live sessions per week held during business hours, where you’ll learn from climate and business experts, and conduct group exercises and discussions. Outside of the live sessions, you will be given materials to read through and assignments to complete.

Week 1
Climate & Business - Why companies are key to tackle the climate crisis

We will start by taking a look at the big picture, what is at stake and how climate change is reshaping the rules of business. We will explore systems dynamics and the role played by corporations. We will discuss how organisations can truly become part of the solution, regardless of their sector and business model.

Week 2
Creating climate momentum in your organisation

We will explore how to strategize and organise on climate within your company. We will discuss proven methods and techniques to influence stakeholders and mobilise colleagues to feel motivated and empowered to act. We’ll also practice having productive climate conversations.

Week 3
The business case for climate

You will learn how to demonstrate the business case for climate action, and how to connect climate goals with broader business goals. We will review case studies examples and role play talking to different stakeholders.

Week 4
Energy - Switching to 100% Renewables

In our first deep dive series, we take a look at one of the most significant goals a company can take on to reduce the impact of its operations: switching to 100% renewable energy. We’ll explore why this is a priority for companies, what it means to commit to this goal, and the different pathways available to companies.

Week 5
Emissions - Developing a meaningful climate program

The second deep dive series is dedicated to corporate greenhouse gas emissions. Learn what it takes to develop a credible net zero plan, and how to help your company take impactful and immediate action towards decarbonisation.

Week 6
Money - Aligning investments with a safe climate future

Investments provide a major opportunity to scale impact. Learn how companies can align their investments - starting with superannuation funds - with a safe climate future, and the short and long term benefits that come from doing so.

Week 7
Advocacy - Using influence to shape policy and drive systemic change

Staying on the side line is no longer an option. In the last deep dive series we will explore how companies can use their influence to drive policy change, and how employees can push their company to step up and be more vocal about climate.

Week 8
Developing your climate voice

Working on change takes courage and confidence. We will help you build your influence potential, increase your communication and leadership skills, and use storytelling to communicate more effectively.

Week 9
Building your roadmap and driving action

Sometimes taking the first step is the hardest. You will identify the biggest opportunities for your organisation to make an impact and work on your plan of action to make change happen.

Week 10
Graduation Week

We will celebrate our learnings and achievements, share our roadmaps for change and get feedback from the community.

WorkforClimate have created a unique offering for individuals who want to make a difference at work. Without the cohort I would not have felt equipped to have important conversations with senior leaders at my place of work. Since the cohort we have swapped our energy provider and set up a community to support future initiatives to improve our environmental impact.
