Society for the Environment

The Society for the Environment is the body responsible for the registration of environmental professionals.  We are the custodian of the Chartered Environmentalist and Registered Environmental Technician registers, and since 2004 have established a sound platform as the body tasked with championing and registering the expertise of environmental professionals.


Registration 101 || CEnv and REnvTech Registration Fee Reduction

Did you know that until the 30th September 2020, the fees to become a CEnv or REnvTech have halved?

The reductions are as follows: 

  • CEnv initial fee now £44.00 (reduced from £88.00)
  • REnvTech initial fee now £20.50 (reduced from £41.00) 

To clarify, the registration fee is now the same as the annual renewal fee and includes the first year of registration. The standard 2020 fees will continue from the 1st October 2020.

Today there are over 7000 Chartered Environmentalists registered, drawn from a range of diverse fields such as engineering, forestry and waste management. For environmental professionals independent of discipline, chartership reflects a high level of skill and experience, setting Chartered Environmentalists apart from others working in their field. It enhances career prospects through establishing proven expertise, experience and commitment to professional standards.

In the UK and across the world, Chartered Environmentalists utilise their specific expertise to lead departments, advise governments and work hands-on as practitioners.


Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) is the professional title for environmental technicians. Registered Environmental Technicians come from a broad range of professions across industry, government, education and the public sector. They all have demonstrated they apply sustainable thinking through their working lives and a commitment to environmental best practice.

To gain their registration, individuals have been judged by their peers to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the environment and sustainable management together with their personal commitment to maintaining the required levels of professionalism and their own competence through continued professional development.

Registration sets REnvTechs apart from others working in their field. It establishes proven knowledge, experience and commitment to professional standards, and enhances career prospects.
