Integrating Climate Change Education into Responsible Management Education? Carbon Literacy Training in Coronation Street

The Coronation Street production unit at ITV Studios has recently achieved accreditation as a Carbon Literate Organisation (CLO). CLO status is attained by organisations that can demonstrate: a commitment to Carbon Literacy; a substantial number of employees who are Carbon Literate; and a commitment to supporting its Carbon Literate employees and maintaining its low carbon culture. Following on from this success the Coronation Street team have engaged with researchers at Nottingham Business School to evaluate in detail the effectiveness of carbon literacy training upon their staff and its impact at an organisational level. The research team will use a mixed methods approach and has been given access to a range of staff from Heads of Departments such as Design, Transport, Costumes, Story Office and actors e.g. the soap includes a carbon passionate council member character. Overall the research aims to develop a framework on how to integrate carbon literacy training into organisations. The interviews took place in November/ December 2017 and the research team consists of Associate Professor Petra Molthan-Hill (PI), Dr Rachel Welton, Associate Professor Wendy Chapple and Dr Michael Hewitt, Nottingham Business School. In this seminar first results will be presented.
