Thinking of applying for Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) status in 2023? Here’s what you need to know

What is CEnv?

CEnv is a chartership recognising the work that professionals do to lead the path towards a sustainable future.

What skills are required for a successful CEnv application?

CEnv assessors have highlighted some of the key skills that characterise being a CEnv, they include:

  • communication

  • collaboration

  • management

  • leadership

  • curiosity; and

  • a willingness to continuously evolve and learn.

Some top tips for writing your CEnv application in 2023

  • don’t ignore where your sector/organisation could improve on an environmental level because few industries are 100% green

  • demonstrate quality and varied experience rather than relying on a high number of years’ experience in your sector

  • make sure to show understanding of the environment through your own sector and work and make it relevant to your own experience

  • understand CEnv is an individual achievement; you should, therefore,

  • use I not We in your application

  • include your own opinions if you can argue them well; and

  • include how you have helped the environment in a personal capacity. It doesn’t all have to be about demonstrating skills in a professional setting.
