SE0914-Delivering Sustainability – Developing Organisational Capability

This IEMA workshop will begin by setting out the global trends that will affect all business and drive the need for enhanced environment and sustainability capabilities in and between organisations. The workshop will include group discussions to identify what organisations are already doing in this area, how it is monitored and managed and how drivers, such as the competence and awareness clauses in DIS 14001, could influence future actions.

By attending this workshop you will get a greater appreciation of the action you can take to develop the environment and sustainability capabilities in your organisation. The outcomes of the workshop will feed into the development of IEMA’s forthcoming position statement - Skills for the Sustainable Economy, which will be launched in December.

NW0914-Leading on Sustainability - Sold Out

IEMA is taking forward sustainability as a central focus. In last year’ vision 2020 consultations, members expressed support for IEMA to directly address sustainability

. In addition, in April IEMA merged with GACSO - The Global Association of Corporate Sustainability Officers in what we have described as a “Transformative Collaboration for Global Sustainability”.

For any member with a sustainability interest or role, this workshop will be an opportunity to learn about current developments and also to help develop and shape our approach.

The workshops will inform IEMA contributions into our developing work with GACSO for example on professionalisation of corporate sustainability and also on our developing lexicon, narrative and understanding of sustainability more broadly across our membership.
