IEMA congragulate the first members to achieve the new IEMA Diploma in Sustainable Business Practice

More than 25 delegates have now advanced their strategic environmental knowledge through the IEMA Diploma in Sustainable Business Practice (DipSBP).

Officially launched in the environmentalist in March, the Diploma supports Associate members requiring an advanced environmental qualification to drive strategic change in their organisation and influence decision making at board level.

It builds on the knowledge and understanding gained through completion or achievement of IEMA Associate membership (65% of IEMA members are Associates), broadening an individual’s knowledge and understanding beyond their immediate role or sector.

The Diploma provides a supporting framework for Associate members to develop their knowledge and understanding to the level necessary to accomplish Full membership.

Because the Diploma is aimed at members who are working in a business environment, it has been structured to integrate with working life, and the assignments are often based on work-related practices and real-life examples, making the workload, although challenging, achievable.

To date, 27 delegates have now proved this by undertaking and passing the DipSBP. IEMA would like to congratulate each of the following on their success.

  • Darren Amos
  • Charles Carradine
  • Robert Clegg
  • Michael Cox
  • John Fanning
  • Mame-Coumba Faye
  • Mike Fenton
  • David Forbes
  • Adrian Garrity
  • Andrew Harris
  • Mark Hewitt

  • Barrie McQueen
  • Daniel Oldfield
  • Jason Posner
  • Emma Saych
  • Davis Starling
  • Ian Tennant
  • Caroline Thomson
  • Kay Wagland
  • Andrew Wilson

Each of the delegates so far has studied with EEF’s Woodland Grange. Wayne Roden, course manager of the IEMA Diploma at Woodland Grange, said: “On behalf of EEF and Woodland Grange I’d like to congratulate the IEMA Diploma graduates. While this course is intense and requires an admirable level of dedication, the knowledge and experience gained through study and the class work is unrivalled.

"The graduates have been able to take what they’ve learned back to their workplace, apply the concepts, techniques and processes covered in the syllabus and really make a difference, delivering benefits both for environmental and business performance in meeting the challenge of sustainability. I know that the rest of the EEF team and IEMA are looking forward to welcoming many more Diploma delegates in the months and years to come.”

The DipSBP is currently being rolled out to a number of approved training providers. EEF Woodland Grange will continue to offer the Diploma alongside their other IEMA approved courses.
