Green HRD

Technology

Technology provides us with a range of communications opportunities and Green delivery of learning including e-delivery.

It is about making informed choices, what we deliver and how we deliver.

Green HRD

Culture

A Green HRD culture could be developed within organisations, including sustainable people development practices including local and internal talent management.
