Event description

Description

Join your upcoming workshop to explore the increasingly complex environmental and sustainability challenges involved. IEMA is undertaking a comprehensive study to highlight the future challenges for environmental auditing, which include:

• An increasing trend towards integrated systems and auditing,

• A growing array of environmental standards with some requirement for auditing,

Increasing expectations of auditors in relation to social issues,

• Growth in the requirements of stock exchanges for the submission of sustainability data,

• A lack of accessible guidance for internal auditors, especially in SMEs,

• An increasing emphasis on lifecycle and the supply chain, including issues such as conflict minerals, anti-bribery legislation, modern slavery, etc,

• The competence of auditors (including those involved in certification),

• Increasing expectations for some auditors to work in international settings (due to globalisation and mergers).

This workshop is your opportunity to contribute your thoughts and ideas to this important work. You’ll be led by Nigel Leehane, an IEMA Fellow, Principal Environmental Auditor and chair of the ISO environmental auditing committee, to explore these issues - and what we can do about them.

The findings of the study will help us to shape IEMA’s future strategy for the provision of auditors. It will also be offered to the International Organization for Standardisation’s environmental auditing sub-committee ISO TC207/SC2, which is reviewing its strategy.

Our objective is to publish the report by the end of March 2018.

Come along to this session and let’s explore the future challenges for environmental auditing, and what we can do to manage them. Book your place now.
