New Initiative Recognises Organisations Championing Environmental Professional Registrations

11th June 2019

The continual development and recognition of environmental professionals is something to be celebrated. With this in mind, the Society for the Environment is highlighting organisations that truly champion their Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and/or Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) employees.

At their annual Awards and Lectures event held on Tuesday 4th June at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the Society launched the “Employer Champion” recognition programmes. The Employer Champion programmes allow organisations of all sizes to apply to become a “CEnv Employer Champion” and/or an “REnvTech Employer Champion”.

Registration as a CEnv or REnvTech demonstrates that an individual has been judged by their peers to be working at the highest standards in the environmental profession. Employers of CEnv and/or REnvTech registrants benefit too, as the registrations showcase the expertise and capabilities of their workforce. To be recognised as an Employer Champion highlights all of this and more, as it shows that the organisation provides the relevant support and opportunities for employees to excel.

By supporting aspiring CEnv and REnvTech registrants to reach a milestone in their careers and by enhancing the positioning of current registrants, an organisation will:

• enhance its brand;
• increase trust and positioning;
• help it 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.

The Society invites you to showcase your organisation’s commitment to championing the environmental experts you employ by applying to gain CEnv Employer Champion and/or REnvTech Employer Champion status – at no cost. Employer Champions can come from across a huge range of sectors and vary in size, but they all employ and support registered environmental professionals.
