They are intended as one source of information about the breadth and complexity of sustainability in order to help RTOs to:
- Undertake detailed research about specific concepts and techniques

- Develop their training and assessment resources.
The resources provide general information and examples only and do not reflect any mandatory requirements for training and assessing the units.
What are the resources?
Sustainability sector guides
The Sustainability sector guides show how different sustainability issues affect different sectors or even processes within a sector. Some might have high energy or water consumption while others might need to focus on supply chain issues or community relationships.
Embedding Energy Management
Embedding Energy Management is a structured program that provides a suite of practical tools, practice guides, case studies and examples of industry best practice in energy management.
The program and resources are contextualised for foundries and other heat or energy intensive businesses.
Energy Efficiency Skill Sets and resources
The resources explain the Skill Sets and will assist RTOs to design and deliver training and assessment. Examples of online assessment questions are provided for each Skill Set.
Energy Efficiency videos
These videos show real examples of Australian businesses, their energy challenges and solutions. The videos also explain key concepts that underpin the Skill Sets.
The videos can be viewed online or RTOs can choose to link to or embed the videos in their own programs.
These downloadable guides about cover five concepts that apply across units of competency and in some cases at different ‘levels’.
They explain the basic concepts and show some simple and some more sophisticated ways they might be applied.
