Official launch

New IEMA Sustainability in Practice Guide

27 September 2018

IEMA’s latest Sustainability in Practice Guide is on ‘Managing compliance with environmental and human rights law in organisations’.

Laws and regulations provide a cornerstone for protecting the environment and society from harm. Organisations have a legal and moral duty to comply with these laws and regulations, but given the complexity of legal requirements regarding environmental and human rights protection, this is a significant challenge for them.

To rise to this challenge, IEMA will officially launch the second edition of its practitioner guide on Managing Compliance with Environmental & Human Rights Laws in Organisations in collaboration with Colleen Theron, Fellow Member of IEMA.

IEMA Wales, as part of the Wales Festival of Innovation, held a highly engaging and punchy event based on novel environmental solutions that have been developed or delivered in Wales. The event included six presentations, delivered in a PechaKuha format (20 pictures x 20 seconds), on a variety of topics, including alternative fuels, geotechnical solutions, Wales’ first plastic-free shop, treating mine water, biomethanation and the visual impact of electricity infrastructure. Delegates reported it was an excellent opportunity to network and share ideas. One attendee called it a “great event with excellent presenters, talking about a wider range of innovative projects“.
