Become a Society for the Environment Licensed Member

Your institution could join our community of members and offer the CEnv, REnvP and/or REnvTech professional registrations to your members.


The Society for the Environment is the body responsible for the Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv), Registered Environmental Practitioner (REnvP) and Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) professional registrations. Since receiving its Royal Charter in 2004, the Society has overseen the registration of over 10,000 environmental professionals, drawn from a diverse range of fields, such as engineering, water supply, ecology, forestry and waste management.

As an umbrella organisation, the Society currently comprises 24 professional organisations as Member Bodies – our members. These organisations promote the Society and its work, join and contribute to the Society’s Member meetings, and help to make strategic decisions via the Advisory Council.

Currently all Member Bodies have also been granted a licence by the Society to award the CEnv registration to their appropriately experienced and knowledgeable members. A selection are also licensed to award REnvP and/or REnvTech status. Your institution could do the same for your members with competence in their environmental work.
