Chartered, Practitioner & Technician registration - Global marks of trust

Through Royal Charter we are tasked with championing and registering the competence and expertise of environmental professionals. We are the custodian of three professional registrations:
- Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv)
- Registered Environmental Practitioner (REnvP)
- Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech).

Working as a partnership with professional bodies known as Society for the Environment's "Member Bodies", we ensure the quality, relevance and awareness of our three registrations and facilitate collaboration with our partners and registrants. We are in a unique position, bringing together a wide range of disciplines and sectors to reflect the multi-disciplinary practice of environmental professionals globally.
