AXA Climate launches e-training to help FMs prepare for sustainability transformation

The e-learning arm of sustainable insurance & consulting company AXA Climate, the Climate School, has launched a new training module specifically designed to aid people in the facilities function to adapt to the demands of sustainability transformation.

Written in collaboration with a range of facilities professionals and experts, the ‘I work in facility management’ course places the challenges and opportunities of the climate crisis in perspective, in the form of seven video chapters, aiming to empower professions with the tools they need to make a difference in sustainable transition.

Topics covered on the course include:

  • Hard services: Everything related to buildings and their maintenance, including energy performance management, water consumption, lighting, and air conditioning.
  • Soft services: Including collective catering, cleaning services, waste management, green spaces, and more.

The Facilities experts and change-makers whose experience and insights were drawn on to create the training include:

  • Noémie Feldbauer, Head of Energy Transition at transport and logistics solutions leader Groupe Heppner
  • Christian Whitaker, Head of Sustainable Operations at global real estate specialist Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL)
  • Sandrine Lefebvre, Groupe Kingfisher / Brico Dépôt à Brive

The course is a key pillar of the ‘Act’ part of The Climate School’s catalogue, where specific practitioners across a range of industries access guidance on actions they can take in their day jobs to respect planetary boundaries.

Celli Lloyd, UK Country Launcher, AXA Climate, commented: “An important part of the burden of steering today’s organisation to the sustainable one of tomorrow falls on the facilities specialist. The problem is that without the basics in place, this can seem like an overwhelming set of challenges. The good news is that practical, helpful, and actionable guidance that facilities teams can learn from now exists. The facilities management course is the perfect place to start your sustainable journey and help put the profession at the tip of the net zero organisational spear, where it belongs.”
