Environmental Policy Forum

The Environmental Policy Forum (EPF) is a network of UK-based environmental professional bodies promoting environmental sustainability and resilience for the public benefit - with SocEnv acting as Secretariat.

Through regular meetings, workshops and electronic media, the EPF leads on the production of policy papers in order to influence environmental policy and its formulation.

Our latest research

In Summer 2023 the Environmental Policy Forum (EPF) issued a green skills survey.

The survey was developed to determine:

• The extent of the green skills challenge across sectors and anecdotal/ research evidence to demonstrate this challenge.
• Activity underway or planned to address green skills challenges where they exist.
• Interest in collaboration and areas where activity could be focused to maximise our collective impact.

Discover the full results and our work to deliver on the survey recommendations via the link below.
