We’re delighted to announce that this year marks our inaugural IEMA sustainability and environmental professionals’ conference, Connect 2021, which will be free and exclusive to IEMA members.

The conference will be hosted virtually and streamed live on 9 December, focusing on a series of key environment and sustainability topics – from climate change, biodiversity and sustainable economies to an in-depth look at, and chance to discuss, COP26. We will also be hosting a series of workshops on the importance of green skills and behavioural changes in organisations.

We have invested in a new software platform that will allow more effective networking between attendees. Registrants will have access to the attendee website, where they’ll be able to watch livestreams or on-demand session videos, join collaborative sessions, visit virtual exhibitor booths, schedule appointments, share feedback, and more.

Ultimately, this will be a more streamlined format – akin to an in-person conference, connecting IEMA members from around the world with one another. We have exciting globally recognised speakers lined up, so keep an eye on our website and member emails for more details, and make sure to register today at We look forward to seeing you there.
