2018 SocEnv Awards & Lectures - What Did You Miss? 

Where do we start? The Society celebrated World Environment Day 2018 with an amazing line-up of award-winners and stimulating lectures centred around this year’s theme urging people to ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.

We welcomed CEnvs and REnvTechs, future environmental professionals, colleagues and friends to Arup’s London offices on the 5th June to learn, network and celebrate. We presented the coveted 2018 Environmental Professional of the Year award to passionate CHP Manager, Graham Powell CEnv, as well as awarding three new Honorary Fellows of the Society for the Environment (HonFSE). 

On top of the above, we heard from expert speakers who offered insight into, and challenged topics such as; natural capital, Welsh policy, professional registration, the success of a 5p bag charge and, of course, plastic. To kick off proceedings we enjoyed a key note talk from Professor Ian Boyd, Chief Scientific Adviser for Defra, who suggested that "plastics themselves are not the problem, rather plastics in the wrong places are the key problem."

The Society frequently engages with decision makers, influencers and partners from a wide spectrum of organisations and government bodies. This takes the form of our policy workinsights, events and more.

We are constantly wanting to hear from our registered environmental professionals to find out what they want the Society to engage people on and to inform our engagements to ensure that the voice of environmental professionals is heard.

Chartered Accreditations


Having a professional registration from an organisation with a Royal Charter demonstrates an individual possesses and maintains the knowledge, skills and commitment required by their profession.  Professional registration is widely recognised as a mark to be trusted and carries a strong reputation for quality around the world. Professional standards are monitored and remain up to date through continuing professional development.  There is also a robust disciplinary process in place should something go wrong.

Registration sets Chartered Environmentalists apart from others working in their field. It establishes proven knowledge, experience and commitment to professional standards, and enhances career prospects.

Having Chartered status means that you are at the pinnacle of your profession.  When you work with a Chartered Professional you can expect them to meet the highest possible standards for their profession. Being a registered technician recognises your status as a professional within your field.


Being a Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) is about having the professional knowledge, experience and commitment to apply sustainable thinking throughout your daily working life.
