IMS welcomes 40 new members and presents its 2024 programme

Published on 9 February 2024

Decoding the complexity of sustainable development issues and supporting organisations

Climate emergency, loss of biodiversity, waste management, eco-mobility, carbon neutrality, respect for human rights, information overload, well-being at work, partnerships between associations and companies, diversity and inclusion, talent retention, future skills and guidance, new economic approaches, responsible purchasing and consumption... these are just some of the many challenges to which companies must respond and on which they are expected to act by their stakeholders. Everyone can quickly feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of issues on which they need to raise awareness, act, measure their impact and train their staff. 

Faced with companies' growing interest in sustainable transformation, IMS Luxembourg's activities are expanding, and the subjects remain numerous and interconnected. The vision remains the same: "to make Luxembourg the benchmark for a prosperous and sustainable society". The IMS 2024 programme was shared at the presentation conference on Thursday 8 February, with a few key points to remember: the importance of training with the Sustainability Academy, two highlights not to be missed, and a network that is welcoming more than forty new member organisations.


Training, a powerful lever for transition with the Sustainability Academy  
Two years after its launch, the Sustainability Academy has established itself as the only academy in Luxembourg entirely dedicated to sustainable development issues. The Sustainability Academy offers in-company and, above all, tailor-made training courses to meet the needs of all Luxembourg companies as closely as possible. It is continuing to grow, with a dedicated resource in the IMS team and the arrival of new experts, bringing the number of trainers to over twenty-five today. More than forty training themes are covered under the three pillars of sustainable development: People, Planet and Prosperity.



Two highlights in 2024, open to all organisations in Luxembourg 

  • 2nd edition of the Sustainability Awards

In 2024, the IMS Luxembourg Sustainability Awards will reward the best national sustainable development practices implemented in organisations in Luxembourg in four separate categories: People, Planet, Prosperity, and Sustainability Team. Participation is free and open to any organisation based in Luxembourg, whether it is a member of IMS and whatever its size, status - private, public, or voluntary - and sector of activity.
Applications will be open soon. Organisations have until midnight on 14 June 2024 to submit their applications.

  • 13th edition of the Luxembourg Sustainability Forum 

The 13th Luxembourg Sustainability Forum (LSF) will be held in the second half of 2024. The LSF is the key event for sustainable development in Luxembourg. Organised each year by the IMS team, it offers fresh perspectives and inspiring, practical solutions to environmental and social challenges, thanks to a top-class programme.  Open to all and a true crossroads for all stakeholders, this day brings together renowned personalities, experts, companies, associations, public bodies, and students... all committed to a resilient and inclusive society.
