Through Investors in the Environment (iiE), you will understand your impact, take action, and demonstrate progress through an externally verified and credible scheme.

We break down the fundamentals of environmental management through our framework to help you:

  • Develop an effective environmental policy or strategy
  • Collect the relevant data to drive efficiency and prevent environmental harm
  • Measure and interpret your carbon footprint
  • Get staff involved and inspired
  • Maximise the impact of your sustainability communication

We make it easy to get started on a journey of environmental progress that is both good for your business and the planet. With iiE, you will benchmark and celebrate your progress every step of the way to set your business apart.

Upon successful implementation of the iiE criteria, members are awarded the recognised stamp of certification.
