A Merry Chief Executive Update from Dr Emma Wilcox

Hello, and welcome to the December update. I am very pleased to see that the number of people signed up to receive our newsletter updates are still growing significantly for each edition. Feel free to share the newsletter with your peers, networks, colleagues and friends – being a CEnv or REnvTech isn’t a requirement. I very much hope that you find the content useful.

Firstly, I’d like to wish you a very happy festive season and all the best for 2019. Throughout the year, we have been fortunate to see some wonderful work by our CEnv and REnvTech community to improve and enhance our environment. We know that 2019 will be challenging due to the dreaded ‘B’ word, but we are still confident that progress is being made to reach the UK Government’s ambition to ensure we leave our environment in a better state than we inherited it. Elsewhere in the world, we are seeing mixed messages, but we hope that countries will align their objectives for a greener future.

With the above in mind, we are pleased to include our new report on Greening the Industrial Strategy in this e-newsletter. The report evidences the work already underway to deliver on the Industrial Strategy and Grand Challenges. This work is illustrated by good practice case studies produced by Chartered Environmentalists – environmental experts in their sectors. The report has been sent to relevant Ministers and teams at Defra and BEIS to highlight the positive work that is taking place to protect and enhance our environment. 


the Society for the Environment’s office, we are pleased to welcome our new Policy and Communications Officer, Sarah Ridgeon. Sarah will be busy compiling the expertise of our registrants for policy responses and influencing policy makers. She will also be playing a key role in communicating our work and the positive work of CEnvs and REnvTechs. 
Plus, we are saying thank you to our Summer Intern, Rob Turner, who has since continued to work with us for one day a week whilst studying for his Masters in Chemistry and the University of Warwick. He is now dedicating his time to studying, which we wish him all the best with. Rob has made an excellent contribution to our efforts to offer the high-quality service the we aim for. He has made particular progress in improving the user experience on our website and bringing the registrations to life with some insightful CEnv profiles. Thank you Rob! 

Once again, I wish you a jolly and environmentally friendly festive season, from the team and volunteers at the Society for the Environment. If you’d like some top tips to have a more sustainable Christmas, please take a look at IEMA's Twitter feed - an idea a day!
