The latest tweets and quotes about IEMA and Transform.
Really informative webinar on the newly published #HIA in #SpatialPlanning guidance by @PHE_uk and the HIA outlook journal by @iemanet @Matt_Orme_
Pleased to have received my @iemanet Associate Membership today. I am looking forward to further developing my environmental and sustainability management expertise! @Thea_Shay
It's been a while since I read @IEMA_Transform on a train but this month it has one on the cover. @RSSB_rail describes how the railways have benefited people and the planet throughout the pandemic – I've seen this for myself today at #Penrith station. @MarekBidwell
Delighted to see @iemanet taking forward action on #diversity in the #environment #sustainability profession. Our (UK) sector is shockingly white, near bottom of the league of professions. Looking forward to supporting action.
Also want to say that I still get a kick out of @IEMA_Transform magazine arriving 'naked'. Small but decisive bit of leadership. @penny_walker_sd
Some very colourful and interesting weekend reading arrived this morning #ethicalconsumer and @IEMA_Transform @greenginger_UK
A group of 12 leading investment consultancy firms, which advise organisations managing around $10trn (£7.3trn) in assets, have launched a new initiative to help deliver net-zero emissions by 2050.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has published a new 'Green Claims Code' to ensure businesses are not misleading consumers about their environmental credentials.
The UK government has been “too city-focused” in its climate action and must provide more funding and support to reduce emissions in rural areas, the County Councils Network (CCN) has said.
In 2020, amid the global crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw numerous cross-sector collaborations involving tech companies, aiming to create smart solutions that would amplify positive environmental and social impacts across sectors and organisations – for example in online healthcare or mRNA vaccine platform technology. This led the public health crisis to be referred to as “the digital accelerant of the decade” by US cloud communications platform Twilio.
The UK's largest defined benefit (DB) pension schemes have received a letter from the Make My Money Matter campaign urging them to set net-zero emission targets ahead of the COP26 climate summit later this year.
New jobs that help drive the UK towards net-zero emissions are set to offer salaries that are almost one-third higher than those in carbon-intensive industries, research suggests.
