Climate change mitigation and adaptation together with the unfolding biodiversity catastrophe pose the biggest challenges facing our society. Adapting our businesses and industries to meet this challenge requires new ways of working and significant upskilling.

The IEMA Leading with Environmental Sustainability course offers a crucial half day strategy session for business leaders who are responsible for defining their organisation’s longer term business strategy. IEMA has launched this initiative to support business leaders to re-think, re-position and drive a new approach to value creation through Environmental Sustainability.

The course will provide an opportunity to reflect on the organisation’s existing approach to Environmental Sustainability and set a new strategy for resilience and growth in the short, mid and long-term.
