Business & Industry

The infrastructure that underpins modern economic societal needs for water, light, food, transport, housing, energy, sewerage, flood defence etc are designed, developed, maintained and operated by a network of businesses and industries. However, the consequences of urbanisation and industrialisation have had far reaching consequences for critical earth systems and ecosystems and have resulted in a climatic and ecological crisis, along with significant social and environmental harm. Nearly all of IEMA’s activity (e.g. across environmental and social management systems, sustainable development, sustainable finance, impact assessment, climate change, biodiversity net gain, corporate social responsibility and circular economy) is pertinent to transforming businesses and industry to sustainability.
