What is IEMA?

You’ll likely have heard about IEMA, but perhaps you’re unsure what it is and what they do. Let’s look at IEMA, its role, and why that’s relevant to your business.

What is IEMA?

IEMA is the Institute for Environmental Management and Assessment based in the UK, with over 20,000 members worldwide. They focus on promoting sustainability, environmental management, and best practices.

IEMA states they are “The professional body for everyone working in environment and sustainability. We are committed to supporting, encouraging, and improving the confidence and performance of all these professionals, helping them to enhance their profile and recognition.

We do this by providing resources and tools, research and knowledge sharing along with high-quality formal training and qualifications to meet the real-world needs of members – from their first steps on the career ladder, right to the very top. We believe that together we can change perceptions and attitudes about the relevance and vital importance of sustainability as a progressive force for good” [source].

What does the IEMA do?

IEMA is a worldwide alliance of environment and sustainability professionals, and their main aim is to make organisations sustainable and future-proof. The IEMA ensures members are knowledgeable, competent, and highly trained in environmental and sustainability matters.

IEMA is involved in the development and promotion of environmental standards and guidelines. Members of IEMA benefit from access to the latest industry knowledge and best practices in environmental management.

IEMA provides a platform for environmental professionals to connect, share knowledge and enhance their skills. It also offers training courses and certifications to support individuals in developing their expertise in environmental management. These courses cover various topics, including environmental impact assessment, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility.

The IEMA Foundation Certificate and the IEMA Certificate for Environmental Management

The IEMA Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management and the IEMA Certificate for Environmental Management are comprehensive training programmes that give people the proper knowledge and skills to lead and manage environmental practice. The Foundation is the less advanced course, and the Certificate is more advanced, and learners must have passed the Foundation Certificate before sitting the Certificate.

Who are the Certificates for?

The IEMA Certificates are becoming increasingly popular for organisations that wish to upskill their current teams in environmental standards.

Both certificates are part of IEMA’s efforts to provide professional development opportunities and promote best practices in environmental management. These certifications may benefit individuals seeking to enhance their skills, advance their careers, or contribute to improving environmental sustainability within their organisations.

If you want to learn more about IEMA and the Foundation Certificate and Certificate for Environmental Management, Risg Solutions is here to help. We’ve worked with hundreds of organisations that aim to manage their environmental responsibilities effectively and can help you decide the best course of action in how to do so.
