After three years of talking, thinking and planning we have now launched a whole new look and feel to IEMA.

Our memberships are now more relevant and valuable experiences, and more attractive and appropriate for each stage of your career. We also have a far stronger and readily recognisable look and sound, which has been created to fully represent the central ethics of our profession – bright, open and brave. Ultimately we have reshaped ourselves to become what you said you needed us to be.

This is a very exciting time for the environment and sustainability profession. It is a real milestone that shows what a modern and influential profession this is. We are now describing ourselves as a ‘worldwide alliance of environment and sustainability professionals, working to make businesses and organisations future-proof’. That statement has the right impact and perfectly summarises who we are and what we do together. You are part of this alliance, and I am looking forward to working with you as we collaborate more than ever before.

and organisations future-proof’

This is not a gimmick or an emperor’s new clothes approach. We have rebuilt IEMA’s core mechanics to run on value, relevance and connections. The way we work together with organisations, employers and members – and the way members will be able to work together – will always focus on impactful outcomes and powerful partnerships.

While we have worked very hard to deliver this new-look IEMA, there is more to do. We roll out the new standards for Full and Fellow membership later in 2016. Also, later in the year we will be introducing a series of new training courses and assessment methods and a new framework for continuing professional development (CPD), which supports your learning and career progress. On that note, this month’s training supplement is the perfect opportunity to take a fresh look at your learning options in advance of the new CPD structure.

You can read more about the new memberships and why the new brand looks like it does on pp9–10. Some more in depth context on the membership journey is included in the supplement too (ppiii–vi).

Do visit to our new-look website to see just how much has changed. It is easier to navigate, has much improved functionality and looks fantastic. A perfect allegory for everything about IEMA as we are now, and how we will work in the future.
