Gain Professional Recognition for Environmental Skills with IEMA’s Membership Courses

The sustainability agenda is becoming a cornerstone of good business and organisational practice. Consumers are increasingly expecting goods, services and solutions to be developed with sustainability and the needs of the planet in mind. As well as meeting consumer demand, businesses will also need to adapt to legislative and regulatory changes, finding new ways to work and deliver on their core business objectives.

The sustainability agenda presents organisations with a range of challenges that require a radical readjustment in how they think, plan and operate, but it is also opening up new opportunities.

At this moment of profound change, businesses will require practitioners skilled in sustainability and environmental practices to fill key roles across their organisations.

A Complex Skill Set

Managing this change and shaping the sustainability agenda requires a complex skill set. Environmental and sustainability professionals will need to understand global trends and what they mean for society, the economy and organisations. They will also need to understand sustainable business and governance principles and the implications these have on what businesses deliver for their customers.

By collecting and analysing data, they will know what techniques, tools and systems can be used to improve their organisation’s sustainability performance. They will support transformation, champion change, communicate effectively with stakeholders, and provide the leadership and initiative to shape sustainable products, services and solutions.

How can people within an organisation be equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to meet these challenges and develop new opportunities in a sustainable future?
