Institute hits new record of 20,000 members

30th March 2023


IEMA is delighted to announce that our membership has grown to more than 20,000 professionals working in environment and sustainability roles. This is a 30% growth since 2020, making IEMA one of the largest membership organisations within the sector.

Our growth reinforces the value that our members place on a professional membership and the benefits that we offer, as they are at the centre of the sustainability agenda, connecting businesses and individuals across industries, sectors and borders.

IEMA supports its members on every step of their journey, from undergraduate to retirement, with access to continuing professional development, relevant news and content, best practice and up-to-date policy positions and influence. We train organisations and individuals to make the most environmentally sound choices in their work, and support public and private sector organisations, governments and regulators to do the right thing when deciding on environmental and sustainability related initiatives, challenges and opportunities.

IEMA CEO Sarah Mukherjee MBE said: “I’m thrilled to see just how many people value IEMA membership. When I talk to our members and hear about the work they’re doing, I know that we’re heading in the right direction for a more sustainable future, but we must do more. Equipping our members with cutting-edge tools and knowledge is essential to tackle climate change.”
