The Institute of Sustainable Trade (IST) is a division of the Irish Exporters Association (IEA), the representative association for international trade companies based on the island of Ireland. For further detail on governance at the IEA, please click here.

To provide academic and strategic oversight to the IST’s membership and education programmes, the IEA has established a Curriculum, Quality and Standards Committee. The Committee is comprised of representatives from Higher Education and senior executives with international trade and sustainability backgrounds. The Committee meets quarterly and reports to the senior management at the IEA.
