1,000th Full member named
On 4 August, IEMA reached a milestone as its 1,000th current Full member achieved his MIEMA suffix
Shing Fai “Johnny” Yip (pictured), a facilities and properties management professional based in Honk Kong, became the 1,000th IEMA Full member with an active membership.
This landmark comes in the same year that the Institute revealed that, for the first time, more than 10,000 of its members – about two-thirds of IEMA’s total membership – have achieved professional status by becoming an Associate, Full or Fellow.
Yip has been an IEMA member since 2009, after he achieved Associate status through a distance learning course on integrated environmental management operated by the University of Bath.
By continuing his learning and development in his focus areas of sustainability, energy management and environmental law, Yip has now successfully achieved Full member status – the level of IEMA membership that demonstrates significant knowledge and experience.
“I have always focused on continuing my education and I take great pleasure in upgrading my membership and becoming IEMA’s 1,000th Full member,” said Yip, as he received news of his successful application. “I look forward to seeing the Institute continue to grow.”
IEMA offers its congratulations to Yip on becoming a Full member.

Nearly half of workers would accept a lower salary to work for an organisation that is socially and environmentally responsible, a survey of over 14,000 consumers in nine countries has uncovered.
