The GreenPoint initiative aims at creating a new environmental figure for the metal sector, especially SMEs with low-qualified workers, in order to foster a green culture in the sector and provide a qualified staff, able to deal with the environmental performance of the enterprises.

GreenPoint course available online for the launch of the pilot training!


After several months of intensive work, partners developed the contents of the GreenPoint course based on the Qualification Standard, already published on our project website. This course is made of the most relevant elements that metal and automotion workers should know in order to manage properly environmental issues at work. The GreenPoint course has duration of approximately 4 hours, and is made of 4 main modules:

  • General environmental issues
  •  Enterprise and environment
  • Benefits for the enterprise through environment improvement
  •  Environment control and innovation measures

The course was developed online by the Environmental Academy on a Moodle platform, with interactive contents and online exercises. Previous and final evaluations allow measuring the acquisition of new knowledge by the trainee. During several weeks, partners will now test the course during a pilot training in order to review, correct and improve the contents developed. If you are interested in participating to this pilot and to be one of the first GreenPoint workers, don’t hesitate to contact your national GreenPoint organisation to register! Welcome to the GreenPoint course!
