IStructE’s 2023 pilot success results in first IStructE members achieving CEnv and roll-out for eligible members

Seven members of the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) have secured the globally recognised Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) registration.

CEnv is awarded to professionals independent of discipline, denoting a high level of skill, expertise, and experience in sustainability.

The seven IStructE members who are now CEnv registered are:

IStructE became our newest Licensed Member in 2023. This kick-started a successful pilot registration programme with the seven members above.

From May 2024 it will open registration to appropriately experienced members and fellows who meet the CEnv competences. These are the application of sustainability knowledge, leadership, effective communication, and personal commitment.

A new partnership

Yasmin Becker, CEO of IStructE comments: “We are delighted to work with SocEnv to award these first seven CEnv registrations to our members who have individually demonstrated their sustainability competences in their career as structural engineers. They are all advocates of change.

“Futhermore, CEnv contributes to our strategy to embed embodied carbon literacy requirements into the Institution’s Chartered Member process from 2023, and the revised approach to our Structural Awards that was implemented from 2022.”

Our Chief Executive, Dr Emma Wilcox CEnv FIMMM CMgr, concludes: “Officially partnering with IStructE as our newest Licensed Member allows us to collectively champion those with environmental expertise within structural engineering. We are pleased to be working alongside another sector leader to help our aim of highlighting the variety of green careers available – inspiring future leaders. Our CEnv, REnvP and REnvTech community is shaping a sustainable future, and I look forward to many structural engineers joining them.”
