The Society for the Environment has renewed the Chartered Institute of Building’s license to award the Chartered Environmentalist qualification for a further five years.
Over the last five years more than 300 CIOB members have qualified for Chartered Environmentalist status. To qualify a member has to be able to demonstrate (through qualifications and experience) competency, knowledge and engagement in sustainable management and development.
Michael Brown CIOB deputy chief executive said, “We see the role of the Chartered Environmentalist as important in the overall promotion of sustainability throughout the industry, and a way in which our members can differentiate themselves as experts in green construction. We want green leaders.
“Over the next 5 years we anticipate a significant growth in the number of Chartered Environmentalists in membership. Especially as government initiatives such as the Green Deal come on stream and the overall carbon movement gains more traction. There will be an increase in the demand for these skills within the marketplace, especially at professional level.
“So it is with pride that we retain our license and can continue with our drive to give CIOB members every opportunity to demonstrate their expertise in the UK and abroad.”
