The International Project Management Association (IPMA) has signed an alliance agreement with GPM Global (Green Project Management) to support sustainability in project management.
In addition to strengthening the profession of project management, the agreement covers collaborative efforts on sustainability, such as through information exchanges, joint research initiatives and joint workshops, and specialised education and training on sustainability.
“This alliance agreement enables the development of sustainable solutions for projects and programs throughout the world,” said Reinhard Wagner, President of IPMA.
The alliance agreement also lays the foundation for future joint activities including certification and/or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for sustainable practices in project management.
“Collaborating with like-minded organisations increases our ability to advance sustainable practices on a global scale,” said Joel Carboni, Green Project Management President. “We look forward to opportunities to create shared value to advance professionalism together with IPMA.”
IPMA is a global non-profit organisation with 58 member associations around the world.
Green Project Management is a certified social enterprise that spans 145 countries and territories. Its mission is to decouple socio-environmental degradation from economic growth on a global scale by advancing awareness, adoption and implementation of responsible management practices in support of sustainable development and the UN Global Compact’s ten principles.
