Learning Pool Joins the RPM Program Zero Plastic to Landfill Challenge


We are thrilled to announce that Learning Pool, the leading global leading provider of corporate learning solutions, has taken steps towards a more sustainable future by joining the Zero Plastic to Landfill Challenge during this Plastic Free July!

 In solidarity with the global movement to reduce unnecessary plastic and plastic waste, Learning Pool is committed to minimising their impact on the environment and driving positive change. By taking on this challenge, Learning Pool aims to eliminate the disposal of plastic waste in landfills, contributing to the preservation of our precious ecosystems and safeguarding the health of our planet for future generations. 

Aaron Marshall, Engagement Director met with Chris Myers Smith, Learning Pool Facilities Manager, to discuss the initiative at Learning Pool’s headquarters in Derry, Northern Ireland.

He said "Learning Pool's commitment to the Zero Plastic to Landfill Challenge validates their commitment to sustainable practices, reducing plastic waste to landfill, and promoting responsible plastic management in their organisation. Learning Pool are leading by example.

Chris also commented, "Learning Pool is following the footsteps of corporations like Mcdonald's and The Coca-Cola Company to reduce the use of single-use plastics.

In ongoing efforts to minimise our environmental impact, we have partnered with RPM to ensure that our contributions to the global eradication of single-use plastic are certified and that any plastic we do use is recycled, reused, or compostable.

We have also taken proactive measures such as assessing our carbon footprint, changing suppliers and supplies, and actively participating in litter picks in cities, towns, and beaches.

Learning Pool is a BCorp-certified global e-learning provider who is as passionate about our business and people, as we are about making the world a more sustainable place. As a forward-thinking organisation, we are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to overcome the obstacles that lie ahead. The RPM Program is just one example of how we are prepared to tackle these challenges head-on and ensure our continued success in the future".

The Zero Plastic to Landfill Challenge is applicable and available to any type of organisation. Together, we can turn the tide on plastic pollution and create a cleaner, greener future.
