Many thanks to a departing colleague

26th May 2022

At the end of March, our longstanding colleague Nick Blyth departed IEMA to take up the role of senior environment manager at the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.

Nick made important contributions on climate change and sustainability during his many years at IEMA, including: the development of the IEMA Greenhouse Gas Management Hierarchy; advocacy that led to greenhouse gas reporting becoming a mandatory requirement under the Companies Act; and work on sustainability, including publication of Beyond the Perfect Storm: The Corporate Sustainability Challenge. Nick was also actively involved in the development of international standards and was appointed as chair of the ISO Climate Coordination Committee – a position in which he continues.

All at IEMA wish Nick well in his new role. No doubt we’ll continue to bump into each other through ISO work and links to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change!
