IEMA is establishing a new steering group - specifically for members - that will focus on social sustainability issues.
Social sustainability is an increasingly important element of corporate reporting, with the recently issued standard IFRS S1 on sustainability-related financial information set to become a reporting norm. Further, there is a key role for reporting on social sustainability to complement climate reporting, as organisations seek to measure and demonstrate their commitment to better ways of doing business. Our recent surveys amongst IEMA members revealed that information and knowledge-sharing on this topic was a key priority. As with all our steering groups, the aim of the new social sustainability steering group will be to enable sustainability professionals in the IEMA network to improve their professional knowledge and deliver more for their clients and employers in this space.
The steering group will be established with members who have submitted an expression of interest (EOI).
Diversity in the Social Sustainability Steering Group
The steering group will have 10 – 15 members, and the EOIs will be evaluated by the relevant members of the IEMA staff team taking into account considerations relating to diversity (demographic, technical, and sector). The Chair will be elected by members.
To express your interest in joining the group please respond in no more than 500 words to [email protected] with answers to the following questions:
- What role do you believe the social sustainability steering group should play and what areas should it focus on?
- What experience of delivering social sustainability outputs do you have?
- What other relevant skills and knowledge do you have?
Please also state as part of your application whether you would like to be considered as chairperson of the group.
The terms of reference for the social sustainability steering group can be found here.
Expressions of interest must be received by 31st January in order to be considered.
