Amey joins ranks as an approved training provider
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.”
New jobs that help drive the UK towards net-zero emissions are set to offer salaries that are almost one-third higher than those in carbon-intensive industries, research suggests.
The Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) has today been launched to support financial institutions and corporates in assessing and managing emerging risks and opportunities as the world looks to reverse biodiversity loss.
The UK government's investment plans for green jobs lag far behind those of most G7 countries, potentially undermining its net-zero emissions target, the Trades Union Congress (TUC) has warned.
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.
