This is our second national Sustainability conference organised in conjunction with our London South East and East of England Regional Groups. Feedback from our 2014 conference -
"....probably the most useful conference I have been to in years" - "having grown an aversion to large conferences where only the great and the good appear to speak representing the same companies, with little or no time to speak to anyone about anything of real significance. Here there were facilitated workshops, a virtual café, practical suggestions, case studies, people grappling with issues that others seemed to have an actual understanding of --Refreshing"
A very different conference developed by our members for our members - a firsthand opportunity to learn from leading sustainability Practitioners sharing hard won knowledge and experience.

IEMA’s EIA & ESIA Master Class- 3rd November 2015- This event is sponsored by Royal Haskoning
Enabling sustainable infrastructure - focusing the power of EIA/ESIA
Project level environmental and social impact assessments are the core tools in enabling the sustainably delivery of critical infrastructure and major development across the globe. This conference will give you unique access to experts as they share their knowledge and experience of delivering assessments that are fit for the dual purpose of achieving regulatory consent and securing financial investment.
What you will learn
The day is a catalyst to exchange ideas with key members of the impact assessment community from across UK and International Finance Institutions. The opportunities for knowledge exchange will culminate in a panel discussion to explore the role expertise (and capacity building) plays in delivering effective EIA/ESIA, helping you as a practitioner to prepare for the amended EIA Directive.
The opening keynote will set the day’s tone with the World Bank outlining their future vision for Environmental and Social policy in international development finance, and Crossrail 2 setting out their approach to integrate environment across the project, through a focussed, effective and engaging EIA process. The main sessions will provide leading thinking on critical areas for the future of practice including: proportionate EIA, climate resilience, enhancing health assessment, and the future of ESIA.
By the end of the day, you will have seen and heard a wealth of examples from practice from around the globe, enabling you to return to work updated, inspired and better connected.
Who should attend?
Aimed at professionals promoting and financing major infrastructure projects and their advisers, the conference will benefit delegates from:
Developers of major projects and infrastructure subject to EIA/ESIA (UK and International)
EIA / ESIA and related professionals (e.g. topic specialists, planners, architects, contractors)
