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.

The Environmental Policy Forum’s mission is to influence environmental policy and its formulation by ensuring that environmental sustainability is high on policy agendas. 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.
