Celebrating the Winners of the 2020 SocEnv Awards!  

As part of our celebration of World Environment Day, on Friday (5th June), we announced the winners of this year's SocEnv Awards!

After much deliberation within the judging panel, the 2020 Environmental Professional of the Year award was presented to two registrants for the first time in the history of the award, with Mandhy Senewiratne CEnv, Director at Fyrefly Global Sustainability Ltd & David Symons CEnv, UK Director of Sustainability at WSP, being declared joint winners!

Another first for the SocEnv Awards was the introduction of the Registrant Newcomer of the Year award – designed to highlight individuals who have really hit the ground running having recently achieved their CEnv or REnvTech registrations (since 1st January 2019 in this instance). Chris Landsburgh CEnv, Environmental & Sustainability Manager at Wills Bros Civil Engineering Ltd was a very worthy first ever winner of this award!

Congratulations to all the winners! For more information and to view the full list of finalists including highly commended finalists, please click the link below!

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.
