The Annual Members' Meeting is a chance to meet the Scottish Section Committee and hear about the events that have taken place over the last year, the work of CIEEM in general and some of the plans instore for 2019. We also want to hear your questions and feedback. This is a great opportunity to network with other members in the region, so come along join in!
Prior to the meeting there will be two talks from Shetland Oil Terminal Environmental Advisory Group (SOTEAG):
- Rebecca Kinnear: SOTEAG Executive Officer: An overview of SOTEAG: Scientific Integrity and intellectual independence in an industrial setting
- Will Miles: SOTEAG Seabird Monitor: The value of long term monitoring
For more than four decades, SOTEAG has continued to look after the interests of the environment around Shetland’s Sullom Voe Terminal and Port. It is recognised globally as a pioneering, world-class model of integrated coastal management based on its independent scientific monitoring and expert advice.
The Sullom Voe Terminal is one of the biggest and most complex of its kind in Europe and there is the potential for large risks to the surrounding environment. SOTEAG’s Monitoring Committee plays a key role in monitoring these risks, managing a series of extensive environmental monitoring programmes designed to detect and measure both chronic and acute changes in the marine and coastal environment.
Today, SOTEAG’s role remains both relevant and essential – not only to assure the preservation of Shetland’s natural heritage, but also to share with the rest of the world its experience of environmentally responsible industrial activity in a distinctive cultural setting and sensitive natural environment.
