Public services provider Amey has become the latest organisation to join the IEMA-approved training provider list

The firm, which works across the UK managing public services and infrastructure, such as waste collection, and highways maintenance, is now approved to offer the IEMA carbon awareness course to its staff.

Amey already has a reputation for delivering environmental improvements to its customers and the public using its services. With its help, the Home Office, for example, has reduced its carbon emissions by 15% and is on track to save £1.3 million in energy bills through a pioneering energy management contract.

IEMA’s partnerships manager Jonathan Nobbs welcomed Amey to the approved training provider stable.

“Our training provider list is already an impressive roll-call of specialist trainers and private sector organisations that have a clear and demonstrable dedication to upskilling their staff,” he said. “Adding Amey to that list will only strengthen the reputation and diversity of the scheme, and I am delighted to see them join us.”
