Case Study: DS Smith

TSW Training recently worked with DS Smith to develop the skills and expertise they need to transition to a more sustainable future and thrive in the green economy.

James Nicholl, a trainer at TSW, has seen demand for these courses rise dramatically in recent years.

He says: “Companies understand the value of training. They know it’s all well and good to have a grand vision for decarbonisation, but unless your staff are equipped with green skills, their strategies will not be achieved.”
