How to Become an Employer Champion

Become a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and/or Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) Employer Champion to Showcase Your Commitment to Developing Your Employees with Environmental Knowledge and Experience

Through increasing their influence, highlighting good practice, necessitating continued learning and recognising their competence, the Society supports the work of CEnvs and REnvTechs. The positive returns for an employer of such registered environmental professionals are plentiful.

Select the sections below to find out more:

By supporting aspiring CEnvs and REnvTechs to reach a milestone in their careers and enhancing the positioning of current registrants, you will;

  • enhance your brand
  • increase trust and positioning
  • help to win new work and satisfy current clients
  • improve employee job satisfaction
  • attract higher quality job applicants
  • prove staff competence in legal proceedings
  • showcase a commitment to environmental protection
  • gain further opportunities to showcase environmental case studies and achievements
  • increase the environmental standing of the sector as a whole.

Alongside the benefits of employing registered environmental professionals set out above, becoming an Employer Champion is a demonstration of your commitment to environmental standards, skills and knowledge. This accomplishment provides you with;

  • a Society for the Environment support team to assist with professional registrations
  • access to new networks including the Society’s Advisory Council
  • listing on the CEnv and/or REnvTech Employer Champion webpage(s)
  • a showcase webpage and associated promotion
  • a publicised presentation of your CEnv and/or REnvTech Employer Champion certificate
  • opportunities to help shape our future standards
  • use the CEnv and/or REnvTech Employer Champion logo(s) to showcase your commitment
  • showcase your case studies and good practice across sectors.

The organisation must satisfactorily detail responses to the outlined requirements on the application form. This is designed to confirm that the organisation is in a position to be recognised as a true champion of our environmental professional registrations.

Your organisation has the opportunity to become a CEnv and/or an REnvTech Employer Champion - the choice depends on your ability to showcase how you champion each registration.

Please submit the application form to If approved, we will arrange for the official certificate presentation to be carried out and continue to work with you to develop professional registrations within the organisation. If unsuccessful, the Society’s support team will provide guidance and assistance with the aim of achieving the relevant Employer Champion status.

There are no costs involved in the application process or in the continued support. Special employer projects or promotional campaigns could incur costs, but they are at your discretion and not a requirement for the recognition programme. 

The Society will provide you with support from initial contact. We will arrange a time to discuss the process and answer any questions you have before proceeding.


Following a successful application, your organisation will be presented with a two-year certificate. After two years – and on a biennial, rolling basis – you will be required to submit a self-assessment in order to show that you still meet the requirements before a new two-year certificate is presented. 

In addition to the self-assessment submission, the Society will annually issue a short, electronic questionnaire to your CEnv and/or REnvTech employees to gain their insight into several points covered in the self-assessment submission. This will evidence the self-assessment submission and provide opportunity to evaluate the development opportunities and support for your registered environmental professionals.


My Organisation Doesn't Meet the Criteria

Don’t worry - if you don’t meet the criteria to become a CEnv and/or REnvTech Employer Champion, we still want to work with you to develop professional registrations within your organisation. Simply get in touch to kick things off.
