During a special set of events ahead of Earth Day, Engineers Ireland have today unveiled a new, exciting opportunity to their 25,000+ members – Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) professional registration.
The announcement of Engineers Ireland to offer Chartered Environmentalist registration comes ahead of World Earth Day and Ireland’s Overshoot Day, the day when human consumption outstrips nature’s resource budget for the entire year if everyone in the world lived like the Irish population.
Based in Dublin, Ireland, Engineers Ireland are the first professional body based outside of the UK to offer CEnv registration to members. They join a collective of 25 professional bodies offering CEnv registration to members all over the world. 15% of registrants are based outside of the UK already.
Dr Emma Wilcox CEnv, Chief Executive of the Society for the Environment, said “We see environmental professionalism as the vital component in our efforts to build a sustainable future. A workforce with proven, up to date environmental competence, commitment and overall professionalism must be in place across all sectors globally. The engineering community is major part of this, and we encourage current and future Engineers Ireland members to lead the way.
“Welcoming the first professional body to our SocEnv family with their HQ outside of the UK is hugely positive. Environmental challenges do not stop at geographical borders. We look forward to broadening our Chartered Environmentalist community and facilitating further professional connections to address the challenges we face and turn opportunities into meaningful results.”
“Engineers play a critical role in shaping the world around”
John Power, President of Engineers Ireland, commented: “Engineers play a critical role in shaping the world around us and are uniquely placed to help the world meet critical Sustainable Development Goals – a sentiment echoed by our independent survey respondents.
“As an institution for professional engineers, our members are encouraged to keep the environment at the heart of their roles. As we approach Ireland’s Overshoot Day on Friday and Earth Day on Saturday, we hope to re-affirm the vital role engineers have in delivering sustainable solutions and to provide our Chartered Engineers with the opportunity to attain the Chartered Environmentalist Title.”
CEnv registration is the internationally recognised gold standard accreditation of environmental competence, commitment and professionalism. Its cross-disciplinary format serves to reflect the scope of sustainability – from engineering to agriculture, ecology to waste management. Professionals in every sector can showcase their knowledge and experience, encouraging positive, well-informed, trusted action in all professions.
It’s time to lead the way.
To become a Chartered Environmentalist with Engineers Ireland, applicants must first be a Chartered Engineer. They must then demonstrate:
- application of knowledge and understanding of the environment to further the aims of sustainability;
