The Port of Tyne launches Carbon Literacy tool kit

The Port of Tyne launches its Carbon Literacy tool kit

The 2050 Maritime Innovation Hub, a collaborative initiative led by the Port of Tyne has announced the availability of its Carbon Literacy Learning and Development (L&D) Toolkit.

The Carbon Literacy L&D Toolkit will be accessible to all ports across the UK, commencing from January 2024.

Developed after consulting with leading UK and international ports, and in collaboration with the Carbon Literacy Trust, the toolkit’s launch marks a transformative stride towards engaging port professionals to improve their carbon literacy levels.

The Carbon Literacy Learning and Development (L&D) Toolkit will address vital Maritime 2050 learning objectives, including climate change awareness, carbon emissions reduction, influence amplification and action plan creation.

Embracing cutting-edge AI technology to deliver bite sized learning modules, the content within the Carbon Literacy Toolkit was created by sustainability and maritime experts at the Port of Tyne.

The Toolkit uses video tutorials to empower port professionals with accessible, practical knowledge, enabling them to effect meaningful changes in their daily operations.

The Carbon Literacy (L&D) Toolkit is being just one year after the initial project to create an environmental education programme for the industry was announced.

The launch marks the first time a tailor-made sustainability education programme will be made available especially for maritime and port professionals, according to the Port of Tyne.

Eleni Bougioukou, Innovation Manager for Energy and Sustainability at the Port of Tyne, said: “Climate change is an emergency for everyone and making small changes to our everyday working practices is key to achieving net zero and beyond targets.

“Our toolkit is designed to reshape perceptions about how to manage climate change and engage everyone working in the industry to become more mindful of how they can contribute individually.

“We want to instil a culture intent on reducing the carbon footprint within the whole sector and by providing accessible and engaging learning experiences, we hope to ensure a more sustainable future.”

Earlier this month, the Port of Tyne went live with 4G and 5G private network access, bringing together its aim to become a leading smart port.

More recently, the 2050 Maritime Innovation Hub also announced the launch of the Venture Connect Green Investment Programme (Venture Connect).
