With continuing uncertainty around Brexit and this month marking one year since the launch of ISO 14001: 2015, IEMA is holding a series of policy update workshops this autumn.

Hosted by IEMA’s chief policy advisor, Martin Baxter, the series of free updates are an opportunity to hear about the latest developments and offer feedback on possible further changes.

In particular, the Brexit workshops are for members to share their views and help inform IEMA’s priorities. Each session will discuss and address what could happen to environmental legislation, given that a large proportion of now comes from the EU. This is an opportunity for environment and sustainability professionals to discuss ways of improving protections already in place.

The 14001: 2015 workshops will allow members transitioning to the new version of the standard to share their experiences and feedback (see also pp16–19) on what has worked for them and what has been most challenging. These events are your chance to glean real practical guidance from experts and experienced members.

Baxter will also give an update on expected new standards from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). These are on: climate change adaptation; monetary valuation of environmental impacts; material flow cost accounting and its implementation in supply chains; and determining environmental costs and benefits in organisations. The workshops will take place after the plenary meeting in South Korea between 29 August and 3 September of ISO’s environmental management committee (TC 207) where Baxter will head the UK delegation.

The Brexit and 14001 workshops are being held across the UK and organised in partnership with IEMA’s regional steering groups. The dates and locations of the workshops are:

  • 7 Sep – Bristol: Transition to ISO 14001: 2015.
  • 14 Sep – London: Brexit: implications for environment and sustainability.
  • 15 Sep – Stowmarket: Transition to ISO 14001: 2015 (am); and Brexit: implications for environment and sustainability (pm).
