The Environmentalist magazine set for a September relaunch to boost member benefits

19th July 2017

Last September, an all-member survey on the value of membership and its features revealed that it was necessary to introduce some changes to The Environmentalist to ensure that it continued to serve the membership at all grades.

It also became clear that the magazine needed some changes to correctly reflect IEMA’s broader scope and global ambitions. Since the survey, IEMA has been working to plan a new future for the magazine, and the exciting changes are almost ready to be revealed.

Members will start to see details of the refreshed magazine over the summer before relaunching in September with a brand new design and range of content, all based on feedback offered via the 2016 consultation. The title’s online home will also relaunch alongside the printed magazine in the autumn to create a vastly improved package of membership benefits and opportunities. The existing jobs board is still available at

IEMA has been working with a new publisher to plan and implement the changes. Redactive Media Group has extensive experience of creating and developing membership magazines for over 40 well known professional bodies. IEMA selected Redactive Media Group as the future publisher based on its impressive portfolio and robust credentials. Tim Balcon, IEMA’s CEO, says he is excited to be working with Redactive to deliver the best possible magazine to members: “Our magazine is an important and highly valued element of IEMA membership, read by an alliance of thousands of environment and sustainability professionals worldwide. That is why we have been incredibly careful to select the right publishing partner; we know that Redactive is the perfect choice to deliver and develop the title, and I am looking forward to showing members all that we have planned to enhance the magazine.”

Among the forthcoming changes is a shift in the publication schedule. The magazine will change from being published 12 times a year to 10 issues; July and August will combine to become a summer issue, and December and January will merge to become the winter edition. This means members will encounter a break in publication next month (August), ahead of receiving a new-look magazine in September.

The title’s e-newsletters are now fortnightly, and will continue to be delivered to members’ inboxes, with links to the latest news as well as features, interviews, other updates and jobs.
