This example shows how Training 2000 (T2000) demonstrates to apprentices that being green means being efficient – not wasting money, resources or time. Sustainable development and corporate social responsibility are core values which T2000 shares with its industry partners. A key feature of the outstanding training programme is that apprentices develop technical skills alongside the core values and professional behaviours required by successful businesses.
