Soils and Stones Project

This ongoing SocEnv project aims to expand the adoption of good practice across sectors and influence key decision-makers to implement policies which recognise the value of soils and stones.

In Spring 2021, we published a report into Soils and Stones, looking at challenges and opportunities for professionals working across construction, forestry, engineering and agricultural management. Bringing together the expertise of Chartered Environmentalists, the report contains a number of key asks.

View our report below.

Four key task groups are now underway to deliver on these actions:

  • Resource framework (materials reuse)
  • Regulation and Governance
  • Standards and Training
  • R&D (including non-soil alternatives)

Interested in getting involved and contributing to one of these task groups? Get in touch with Sarah Ridgeon. Please note: holding CEnv registration is an advantage in demonstrating your expertise but not essential.

Watch Back: Report Launch

At our launch event, members of the CEnv task group that produced the report discussed its findings and key asks for ensuring the wider adoption of good practice and policy/ regulatory change. The event also featured talks from supporters on why the report is so important and timely - with insights from UK Soils, the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) and British Society of Soil Science (BSSS).
