The Institute of Chartered Foresters, a Licensed Member Body of the Society for the Environment, have joined SocEnv and a number of our other Licensed Member Bodies in becoming members of the Environmental Policy Forum (EPF), a network of UK environmental professional bodies promoting environmental sustainability and resilience for the public benefit.

As a member, ICF will attend regular meetings and workshops led by the forum to produce policy papers that will help influence environmental policy and its formulation.
