IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment) is the professional body for everyone working, studying or interested in environment and sustainability. We provide resources, tools, knowledge and research sharing to meet the real world needs of our members. We believe that together we’re positively changing attitudes to sustainability as a progressive force for good.
Your membership is the key to getting on and getting recognised. It’s a journey that supports and informs your career, and demonstrates your impact to employers. From Student to Fellow, we’re with you all the way.
Skills and training
The world changes when inspiring and passionate people are enabled to innovate. We exist to support anyone with environment and sustainability responsibilities to upskill so they can achieve their personal and organisational goals. Our huge range of learning and development options – both formal and informal – are tailor made for you.
Dedicating ourselves to improving the world around us should be a goal to which we all aspire. We provide resources and schemes which enable businesses and organisations to improve their environmental performance and gain recognition for doing so.
Knowledge and insight
Membership of IEMA is all about getting involved with the big issues and connecting with others who understand and care about the same things. Whether you want to contribute to a policy consultation, or understand more about evolving practices, this is the right place to be.
Resources and events
We know that one asset members really value is the ability to access all the information they need to stay current and informed. This area is specially designed to support that, featuring stories and videos from IEMA in the news and other media.
