We’re transforming the world to sustainability

As the worldwide alliance of environment and sustainability professionals, we’re working to make our businesses and organisations future-proof. Through our global sustainability standards and partnerships, we are driving understanding and uptake of crucial skills that will keep the world of business in business.

What we do

Belonging gives us the knowledge, connections and authority to lead collective change, with IEMA’s global sustainability standards as our benchmark.

By mobilising our expertise we will continue to challenge norms, drive new kinds of enterprise and make measurable progress towards our bold vision: transforming the world to sustainability.

Here’s a little more about what we do…


Our values are to always be bright, open and brave.

That means we must make bold, transparent decisions that will enable and inspire practitioners around the globe to change their world. We’re guided by committees that drive these decisions, and each one is populated by members, influencers and industry experts.
