International Centre for the Environment, Resource Management & Sustainability

Welcome to the website of the International Centre for the Environment, Resource Management and Sustainability Limited (ICERMS) which was established on 13th March 2014.
This new centre is dedicated to the environment sector and has been created by the merger of two companies, SC Waste Management Limited, which had been providing consulting services to the environment sector since 2002, and Trust Waste Management Limited, a national vocational training centre which has been providing vocational educational training
in the waste management sector since 2010.
Both of these former companies have been largely operating in an international context and the time was right to merge them and to broaden the activities of the new Centre. The merger enabled the new Centre to encompass other aspects of the environment sector better reflecting the needs of the marketplace and the overarching trends of the environment sector.
Waste management was becoming a limiting subject area and an outgrown term in the modern environment industry. This was evidenced by the fact that there was a shifting focus of work towards corporate compliance; resource management; environmental protection; climate change and broader environmental issues as opposed to purely waste management.
This shift in the marketplace was not only related to consulting services but also to training and vocational qualifications.
The new Centre identity better relates to the core business activities and allows the company to more easily engage with the broader environment agenda.
The Centre will continue to be based at the small village of Fairlie in Ayrshire on Scotland’s Clyde Coast.
