A sustainable built environment is designed for longevity, adaptability, and adopts circular economy concepts and practices, but it currently contributes to 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions.

This Level 2 accredited course will help you discover more about the relationship between the natural environment and the built environment, the need for protection of the natural environment, and the impact of construction industry activities versus sustainable construction techniques.

Participants will take a closer look at sustainability in the construction industry, specifically into the relationship between the progressive construction industry and built environment, and the steps being taken to become more sustainable.

About The Course

Delivered over two half-days, entirely online, this course will take a look at sustainable construction, green buildings, and global, local and indoor pollution.  A closer look will also be taken at the environmental policies in the ever-changing Construction sector.

Participants will be introduced to the new innovative techniques businesses can implement and the range of alternative energy sources available across the sectors (wind, solar, geothermal etc.).

Learners will leave the course with both an understanding of the three pillars of sustainability and the skillsets needed to act as individuals at home and at work.


During this ‘Sustainability and the Built Environment’ course, learners will investigate and develop an understanding of:

  • Three pillars of sustainability
  • Alternative energy sources
  • Sustainable construction
  • Global, local and indoor pollution
  • Environmental policies in the Construction sector
  • Green Building
  • Innovation techniques

Upon completion of the course, you will receive an e-certificate (a paper certificate can be sent out upon request) that will enhance your CV and support your career progression.


This course does not have any specific entry requirements.  However, learners MUST have basic IT literacy skills for assessment purposes.

No technical knowledge or previous training in sustainability is required. However, this course offers a natural progression route to those who have previously completed the Level 1 Sustainability course delivered by CMN.

A certain level of commitment will be expected – we recommend dedicating 1-2 hours a week to your studies.  All activities will take place online, so please make sure you have a stable internet connection and suitable equipment to participate in group discussions.

Learning Experience

This course, including all activities and assessments, will be delivered flexibly and entirely online without any need to come to a classroom.

You will benefit from a Course Tutor/Assessor who will provide academic guidance throughout your training, from beginning to end.  Your Tutor/Assessor will comment on the discussions held and provide feedback on all tasks and activities throughout.


Following the completion of the course, you will have the knowledge and foundations needed to naturally progress on to the Level 3 Certificate in Championing Sustainability in the Workplace course where you will develop the skillset to innovate implement sustainable practices in the workplace as Sustainability Champion.  Alternatively, there are also numerous short courses covering specific topics within Green Skills/Sustainability which you could progress onto to expand your knowledge and awareness further.
