This video is an introduction to environmental sustainability in Australian manufacturing.
The first two video chapters explain in simple terms, greenhouse gases, global warming, climate change, our carbon footprint, renewable and non-renewable resources, over consumption and the 5 Rs – refuse, reduce, reuse, repair and recycle.
The remaining ten chapters are three case studies in Australian manufacturing and the steps the people in these businesses took to successfully implement environmentally sustainable activities into their everyday life - at work and at home.
The resource also comes with a Trainer Guide, support materials and PowerPoint that can be customised for different working and training situations.
The Trainer’s Guide includes:
The PowerPoint can be used by the trainer in conjunction with the video to focus learners on key points and allow the trainer to expand on content which may be of interest to them e.g. the 5 Rs, and the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
It can be customised to a particular enterprise, so that training can be made relevant to the specific context of the learners.

This is a self-contained resource which provides an introduction to the language of sustainability and a range of environmentally sustainable manufacturing practices.
As many Training Packages have now incorporated the MSAENV272B Participate in environmentally sustainable work practices unit as a core in their qualifications, workers, apprentices and trainees from a range of different industries will benefit from this resource through their understanding of the need for environmental sustainability in their daily working life.
