As the worldwide alliance of environment and sustainability professionals, we’re working to make our businesses and organisations future-proof. Through our global sustainability standards and partnerships, we are driving understanding and uptake of crucial skills that will keep the world of business in business.
The world is changing – fast. Right now, only 13% of organisations say they have the right skills on board to survive as part of the new, sustainable economy.
These are the few strongest businesses; they’re resilient against threats because they have a skilled workforce of experts ready to tackle challenges and create change. Is your business part of the visionary 13%? If not, upskilling your team is the key to transforming your organisation’s potential and profit. And with IEMA, the global alliance of environment and sustainability professionals, you can access structured support, training and opportunities for you, your fellow leaders, in-house experts and front line staff.
Upskilling doesn’t just happen. You need to embed the right culture of learning and development to unlock the maximum potential of your team and your organisation. IEMA approved training courses set the standard for professional development for anyone working in an environment and sustainability role. Take a look at the routes to IEMA membership here:
We know that anyone with environment and sustainability responsibilities not only needs the right training to make an impact, but also the right on-going support. That’s why our two newest courses have been specially designed to rapidly upskill you, your team or even your whole organisation, and provide the full benefits of IEMA Professional Membership for long-term guidance and updates. The new Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management and Certificate in Environmental Management are both new for 2017, and our Approved Training Providers will be rolling out full details of dates and venues in the coming weeks (you can already find early dates for the Foundation Certificate here). But first, here’s a quick tour of both new courses.
