Registration as a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) via CIWEM

The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) is an organisation comprised of professional bodies and learned societies, known collectively as Constituent Bodies. It aims to lead on the development and regulation of environmental practitioners and to be a respected voice in environmental affairs and sustainable development. SocEnv provides an inclusive platform in which environmentalists are able to debate the issues that will help society move towards sustainability. It encourages and supports its Constituent Bodies in the development and maintenance of the virtuosity of all their members, particularly those who are registered as CEnv.

The creation of the Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) qualification is a sign of a maturing environmental profession and of the importance that government, regulators and industry place on the need for a high level qualification that recognises excellence in environmental practice. It creates greater public and employer confidence in the work that environmental professionals do. This is a great step forward for the profession and a great opportunity for you, the environmental professional.

Applications for CEnv can be made at the same time as applying for Fellow or Chartered Member.

To be eligible for CEnv you will need to have a relevant masters degree or equivalent level of knowledge, and have sufficient relevant and responsible practical experience to be able to demonstrate the CEnv competences. In addition to this, an applicant will be expected to fulfill the requirements for membership of CIWEM and demonstrate the attainment of all of the CIWEM Mandatory Competences.

When invited for interview, applicants will have to demonstrate knowledge of, competence in and engagement with sustainable environmental management and development. They will also have to agree to comply with the Society's Code of Ethics and a programme of Continuing Professional Development.

Every Chartered Environmentalist will be expected to:

  • Incorporate the best principles of the environmental sciences for the mitigation of environmental harm and the enhancement of environmental quality
  • Strive to ensure that the uses of natural resources are fair and sustainable, taking account of the needs of a diverse society
  • Use their skills and experience to serve the needs of the environment and society
  • Serve as an example to others for responsible environmental behaviour
  • Not engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation or discrimination

Commit to maintaining their personal professional competence and strive to maintain the integrity and competence of their profession.
