IEMA's next major report will be unveiled at one of the UK's largest industry events this month.

IEMA is a partner for EdieLive, at Birmingham’s NEC on 17–18 May. As well as having a presence at the exhibition, the event will act as the launch for the institute’s new report, Beyond the Perfect Storm – The Corporate Sustainability Challenge.

Using evidence from a member survey and roundtable events, this report focuses on corporate sustainability, examining how it is viewed, approached, resourced and communicated by organisations and professionals. Beyond the Perfect Storm builds on the findings of IEMA’s seminal report, Preparing for the Perfect Storm: Skills for a Sustainable Economy, which was published in 2014.

This latest study updates the global environment and sustainability megatrends, risks and dependencies, provides IEMA’s vision of corporate sustainability and reviews practitioner insights on the challenge of sustainable development and business transformation.It will be launched in the afternoon on the second day of EdieLive. Report author Nick Blyth, policy lead at IEMA, will chair the Leaders’ Forum session and make a keynote address.

He will launch the report during his speech at 1:25pm, and the report will be available free from the IEMA stand. It can also be downloaded from from 18 May.
