Available now via IWFM Academy, we have introduced three new sustainability courses specifically for the workplace and facilities management profession as part of our activities for ‘Get moving on sustainability: a campaign for change’.

The courses are delivered in partnership with IEMA, the global body for environment and sustainability professionals, and taught by IWFM expert Trainers who tailor the content to highlight the unique role and agency FMs have in driving and attaining sustainability.

We have created these courses in our thirtieth anniversary year as part of our commitment to empower our members to have fulfilling, impactful careers and to help accelerate the sustainability agenda in the sector.

Emma Bellingham, our Head of Training and Qualifications, commented:

‘This is a really exciting time for the IWFM Academy, as we add three new courses to our training portfolio and provide additional value to our members. The courses are part of the Institute’s wider sustainability campaign and are directly linked to the policy work around sustainability, net zero, and FM’s important role in driving change in these areas.’
