The Norse Group is delighted to announce its partnership with the world-leading Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) – a professional body representing more than 15,000 members working in the environmental and sustainability fields.
With a shared ambition of tackling environmental challenges and driving best practice across the board, the partnership will help to unlock new opportunities for the Group; with access to key resources to support professional development, as well as networking events with fellow experts in the field.
The collaboration with IEMA also underlines Norse Group’s commitment to being an industry-leader in sustainability, embedding environmentally responsible practices at all levels of our organisation.
Norse Group Environmental Manager, Andrew Campbell, welcomed the launch of the partnership, which will help to upskill our workforce and stay on top of the latest developments in the environmental sector.
“Partnering with IEMA will help to keep us at the forefront of sustainability. Strategically, IEMA is a key stakeholder helping to drive forward national legislation, and by working together we can better understand and implement best practice across our operations,” he said.
“There will also be exciting new opportunities for environmental training programmes, tailored specifically to the needs of our organisation, which we as a Group look forward to rolling out.”
Continued professional development will also help the Group to deliver its forthcoming ‘Clean Growth Strategy’, which is set to launch later this year, ensuring our operations’ impact on the environment is managed effectively.
From the resources we use, to the vehicles we operate and the buildings we occupy, the Group remains focused on controlling its greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint – with Andrew emphasising how collaboration is key to successfully addressing environmental challenges.
“We all understand the need to work together to drive meaningful change, and by working with other companies which are part of IEMA’s partnership network, we can share knowledge and learn from each other’s experiences.
“This will help us all move towards the Government’s target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, reaping the expected benefits for the environment and humanity,” Andrew said.
