BET is, in principle, a linear training program, i.e. the audience needs to follow each module one after the other. However, the modules are developed in such a way to allow them to be used individually if necessary.


While BET is  an open-source program, all material remains WBCSD’s intellectual property. When using part or all of the material,  users are kindly requested to reference the source using slide 2 contained in the Main Presentation or Facilitator Notes.

How to run a BET course

The BET Facilitator Notes are made in such a way that professionals with a good background in environment and sustainability are able to deliver the course by themselves, and tailor it to their specific needs.

How to customize BET

BET has been developed in a flexible way so that companies can customize the material to suit their needs. In this section you will find different customized versions of BET that have been used by WBCSD members or partners to deliver specific training sessions.
