Society for the Environment

Sustainability Through Environmental Professionalism | Chartered Environmentalists and Registered Environmental Technicians.

Through Royal Charter, the Society for the Environment is the body responsible for the registration of environmental professionals. The Society is the custodian of the Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) registers, and since 2004 have established a sound platform as the body tasked with championing and registering the expertise of environmental professionals.

Being a CEnv or REnvTech is about having the professional knowledge, experience and commitment to apply sustainable thinking throughout your daily working life. Professional registration is widely recognised as a mark to be trusted and carries a strong reputation for quality around the world.

Do you want to stand out from the crowd and showcase your environmental knowledge and expertise? Provide assurance of your competence to employers and/or clients by becoming a CEnv or REnvTech.

The need for chartered and registered environmental professionals is growing, and the Society is growing to reflect this. The environment is not constrained by borders, be it geographical or between industry sectors, and neither are we.

We are in a unique position, bringing together a range of disciplines and sectors to reflect the multi-disciplinary practice of environmental professionals. As an umbrella organisation, the Society works alongside a range of Licensed Bodies to register environmental professionals and to ensure the quality, relevance and awareness of our registrations.

In addition to holding your registration as an environmental professional, the Society offers opportunities to get involved and showcase your work, provides the latest environmental news from across sectors and informs you of relevant upcoming events.

Our 24 Licensed Bodies cover sectors such as engineering, construction, environmental management, environmental sciences, agriculture, fisheries, water, energy, waste management, surveying and arboriculture.
