Meeting lifelong learning needs by distance teaching: clean technology

Barratt, Rod S. (2006). Meeting lifelong learning needs by distance teaching: clean technology. Journal of Cleaner Production, 14(9-11) pp. 906–915.



The role of education and training is increasingly implicit, if not explicit, in environmental legislation and in management system standards. The consequence of these pressures is that organisations must develop their personnel for continuous improvement in environmental performance. Continuing professional development is a lifelong activity that can be supported by distance learning. Some approaches to this are described including various electronic resources, but all emphasise the broad range of issues that come into environmental decision making. The approaches also reflect the growth in corporate environmental reporting and the disclosure of environmental performance indicators. Performance
measures of different media are outlined, while the efficiency, especially in relation to energy use, makes distance learning an application of cleaner production principles.
