Proud Partners of the IEMA Diverse Sustainability Initiative

Mar 2021

Today, Friday 19 March 2021, IEMA are launching a key collaboration with organisations in the environmental and sustainability profession and NGOS, to support and mentor those diverse people working in the environment.
Astutis, an IEMA partner in the delivery of environmental skills training is proud to have pledged commitment through the improvement of diversity through education.

Sarah Mukherjee, CEO, IEMA  says:

“As a British Asian, speaking with diverse people in the sector, I am shocked and saddened by some of the stories I have heard of racial inequality within the environment and sustainability profession. We have a commitment to be far more representative of this country and I urge people to sign up and pledge their commitment to joining us in supporting and encouraging new diverse professionals, wherever they are in their career.”

IEMA are launching the ‘Diverse Sustainability Initiative’ website alongside its goal to build a profession and sector that over time, is reflective of modern Britain. The purpose of the DSI is to improve diversity through education, connection and transparency to support current professionals and increase appeal and access for future and potential professionals.  

Steve Terry, MD, Astutis says:

“We are proud to make a public commitment to the Diverse Sustainability Initiative.  With the fabric of the workplace undergoing major shifts due to factors like the pandemic, we, like many IEMA training partners, have had to reassess how we create and maintain a learning culture that is inclusive and equitable.  By signing up to the initiative we declare that we will continue to improve diversity in the sector through the promotion and delivery of environmental and sustainability skills training.”

By signing up to the initiative, organisations are making a public commitment to improve diversity within their industries, being accountable and making a positive difference to bring about change. Although this is a long-term goal, the purpose is to improve diversity through education, connection and transparency to support current professionals and increase appeal and access for future and potential specialists.
