IEMA Environmental Sustainability Skills for Managers and the Workforce

IEMA-Environmental-Sustainability-Skills-for-the-Workforce-1

Reduce your environmental impact, improve your bottom line and transform the way you work with an environmental sustainability course approved by the IEMA.  

The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) is the professional body for everyone working in environment and sustainability. The IEMA has declared a climate and environmental emergency, they challenge norms and drive new enterprise to make measurable progress to transform the world of sustainability.  They believe that together we can change perceptions and attitudes about the relevance and vital importance of sustainability as a progressive force for good.

The 2019 IPBES report indicated that goals for conserving and sustainably using nature to achieve sustainability may only be achieved through transformative changes across economic, social, political and technological factors. The majority of company executives believe that businesses are ill-prepared for the transition to net zero carbon emissions.  According to the IEMA the path to a more sustainable future relies on employers and employees taking active steps to reduce the gap in their green skills, and those who are not prepared will be left behind. The IEMA supports organisations and individuals to build the capability and skills needed.  Training courses can make a practical difference in the workplace to promote the goal of sustainable development through improved environmental practice. We have recently added the following two courses to provide learners with environmental sustainability skills which are certified by the IEMA.
