Training

Investors in the Environment offers a range of training courses designed to help organisations upskill or reskill their staff with essential sustainability qualifications. We also offer a selection of accredited IEMA-certified training, including Pathways to Net-Zero, Environmental Sustainability Skills for the Workforce, and the comprehensive Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management.

 Here’s what some of our learners have said about our training:

Really useful session with background, methods and ideas. Lots to take in and now implement. 

Brilliant session! First time I’ve really understood scopes despite having it explained several times before. Made carbon footprinting feel really do-able!

We have been grateful to have the support and guidance of the team at iiE to help us further our sustainability goals and manage our environmental impact. Organisations need help to understand and take action on environmental issues, and iiE’s work provides a vital bridge to enable them to do so.

Our certified trainers empower learners with core knowledge in workforce sustainability, environmental management, and net zero-carbon implementation strategies. Plus our iiE accreditation programme enables learners to implement this knowledge to help their organisations gain certification to go beyond with their environmental goals.
