The prestigious Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) has endorsed Thundercat Training, a local firm in Aberdeen, as the first and sole environmental training company in the Granite City and the northeast of Scotland. The Institute, dedicated to “transforming the world to sustainability,” applauds this development, which reduces the carbon footprint of local attendees who previously had to travel to other parts of the UK for training.

Available courses include Environmental Sustainability Skills for the Workforce and Environmental Sustainability Skills for Managers, with more IEMA courses planned for the future. These courses cater to companies across various sectors such as oil and gas, rail, transport, manufacturing, and construction. The growing emphasis on the environment and sustainability means the demand for such training is increasing.

John Richardson, Founder of Thundercat Training, expressed satisfaction with the process of becoming an IEMA approved training center, emphasizing the alignment of standards with their ethos. He highlighted the benefits of offering this specialized training in Aberdeen, which not only saves attendees time and costs but also reduces emissions from traveling.

Mr. Richardson further emphasized the company’s commitment to enhancing the offerings available to businesses and the workforce in the northeast of Scotland despite recent challenges in the local area.

Sarah Mukherjee MBE, CEO of IEMA, praised Thundercat Training for offering IEMA training courses at a crucial time for environmental sustainability. She emphasized the importance of equipping the workforce with sustainability skills to address the climate crisis and ensure a just transition to a low-carbon economy, particularly in sectors and communities most affected by these changes.
