Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv)

As a Licensed Body of the Society for the Environment (SocEnv), CIEEM can offer our Full and Fellow Members the option to apply for Chartered Environmentalist status.

Chartered Environmentalists represent environmental professionals working in the UK and around the world. Leading teams and departments, advising governments and working as hands on practitioners, they use their specialist knowledge and broader environmental understanding to apply sustainable thinking throughout their daily working life.

Chartered Environmentalists come from a broad range of professions across industry, government, education and the public sector. They all have a high degree of expertise in their field and a commitment to environmental best practice.

Supporting your CEnv application 

Your Chartered Environmentalist application will be assessed against the requirements of each of the Society for the Environment (SocEnv)’s Key Competencies, which can be found on SocEnv’s website.

How to apply

The process for applying for Chartered Environmentalist consists of two parts and both of these must be passed in order to be successful. Both stages are assessed against the requirements of each of the Society for the Environment’s Key Competencies. You must first complete a written application within which you must demonstrate to the assessors that you meet the minimum standards of competence required at Stage 1. If successful, you will be invited to attend a Professional Review Interview where you will have the opportunity to demonstrate that you are practising at or above the required standard by drawing on your relevant experience as an environmental professional.

Applications are accepted at any time throughout the year.

CIEEM’s application assessment process is subject to change.  Please ensure that you are using the up-to-date application form when applying and if in any doubt, please contact before submitting your application.
