Edsential – Inspiring A Greener Generation

Edsential’s Eco Journey

Edsential are a community interest company with the mission to change children’s lives. We know that to do this, we have a responsibility to support schools and empower young people to lead environmental change.

This began in 2019, when we became the World’s First Certified Sustainable Palm Oil Catering Company. But we didn’t stop there. Our latest initiative, the Edsential Climate Change Teacher Toolkit, saw us working alongside Chester Zoo, Efeca and the Cabinet Office to support teachers educating the younger generation on how to save our planet.

Climate Change Teacher Toolkit

The toolkit links teachers and educators to a wide range of resources that will support learning about climate change and specifically the four targets being discussed at the COP26 conference;

  • reaching global net zero by 2050
  • adaptation to protect communities
  • mobilising finance
  • working together to deliver goals

Experts at Edsential have reviewed hundreds of teaching resources and identified those that link directly to the curriculum. Edsential’s partners Chester Zoo and Efeca have contributed a wide range of their own resources to the toolkit along with other world-renowned names like the BBC. The resources cover several subjects for EYFS through to Key Stage 4.

The free to use online platform signposts businesses to the latest, best-practice guidelines and information when it comes to sourcing sustainable commodities – particularly those linked to deforestation and conversion of natural habitats, like palm oil and soya.
