IEHA launches new sustainability certification

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

IEHA, a division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association,  announced the launch of its new Sustainability Professional (SP) credential. The sustainability certification includes three modules, The Sustainability Advantage, Making a Business Case for Sustainability and Selling Sustainability to Stakeholders.

“In analyzing how best to assist our constituents, we determined there is a need for sustainability credentialing to help members stand out,” said IEHA executive director Michael Patterson.

“As the concept goes mainstream, certified members can drive internal sustainability programs and integrate with corporate sustainability management systems.”

The one-day workshop can be taken online or in the classroom. IEHA will conduct the inaugural class in November, with additional opportunities scheduled for 2019. Recertification as a Sustainability Professional is required every two years, on the even year.
