We’re Hitting New Heights

Over the last couple of months, we have been able to finalise some impressive Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) figures from 2017, we welcomed a new Constituent Body and the plans for World Environment Day 2018 are well underway. 

The Society continues to go from strength to strength, having recruited above target numbers of new Chartered Environmentalists in 2017, with over 7,300 now on the register, and closing in on registering 10,000 CEnvs since our inception. Plus, 2017 accounted for the highest number of new registrations via the traditional application route to date. Adding to this, 2018 also appears to have got off to an encouraging start. 

I am delighted to see that increasingly more individuals are showcasing their environmental knowledge and expertise by gaining professional registration, during a time where environmental issues and pressures are coming to the forefront in policy, government and with the general public. The Society’s position is clear when it comes to the need for experts to guide government, businesses and education on environmental matters in a so called ‘post truth’ era. 

In January, the Society welcomed the Nuclear Institute as a new Constituent Body (CB) following approval from the Council, taking the number of CBs to 25 in total. We look forward to this relationship and the future potential for new CEnvs to add value to a complex and multi-dimensional agenda.

2018 will see the return of World Environment Day – an annual, flagship UN Environment initiative taking place on the 5th June, championed by the Society. The preparations are in full swing for the Society’s annual World Environment Day event (taking place on World Environment Day itself), as well as opportunities for Chartered Environmentalists and Registered Environmentalist Technicians to get involved in the run up to the day. 

We want you to embrace World Environment Day to showcase your positive work as an environmental professional. What do you do for the environment? How does your organisation reduce its environmental impact? Have you been involved in a project that changed perceptions? We want to hear from you! Contact our Marketing Executive, Phil Underwood, to discuss how you can be involved. Remember, we’re always open to new ideas and suggestions. 
Further details about our World Environment Day event will be released soon, alongside registration. 

All for now.

Congratulations, a New Chair Elected, ENEP Opportunities and Upcoming Events

Image: The Society's AGM in July.

Welcome to the August edition of our newsletter and a really warm welcome to all of our new Chartered Environmentalists and Registered Environmental Technicians who have gained their registrations recently. Massive congratulations from the Society for the Environment team!  

We always want to hear thoughts from our registrants on how we can ensure you get the most recognition for your registration so if you have ideas please let us know. 

The Society's AGM took place in July and we are delighted to welcome Professor Will Pope as our new Chair. We also cannot pass without saying a huge ‘thank you’ to Dr Peter Matthews for all of his hard work during his two years as Chair.

We are also delighted that Martin Baxter, Chief Policy Advisor at IEMA, was elected as the Registration Authority Chair. Martin will lead our Registration Authority to continue to ensure that our CEnv and REnvTech standards are consistently applied and the competences required continue to meet the needs of employers, decision makers and of course the environment.

I would like to take this opportunity to highlight that the Society is a member of ENEP (the European Network of Environmental Professionals), which provides an excellent mechanism for our registrants to build and maintain European wide connections. ENEP has a web platform for its members, which include Chartered Environmentalists and Registered Environmental Technicians. If you are yet to sign up please visit the ENEP website. Signing up gives you access to, and an individual profile on, the online directory of European environmental professionals, as well as access to additional website content. 

In addition to the above, in my new role within the Executive Committee at ENEP, I look forward to continuing to provide our registrants with a forum for collaboration across Europe.

Lastly, the Society’s team will be supporting and attending a number of exciting events over the next few months, including RWM, Flood Expo 2017, IAgrE Landwards Conference and the latest Castle Debate. Please come along and have a chat with the team.
