What We Do

We work to advance the understanding and standards of practice of ecological and environmental management for the benefit of the natural environment and society.

In order to achieve our mission, CIEEM engages in a wide range of activities. These include:

  • Establishing and upholding standards of professional competence and conduct of those who practise ecological and environmental management as a profession;
  • Promoting the sharing of best practice through publications, networking and awards;
  • Supporting continuing professional development (CPD) through the provision of  training and conferences;
  • Being an influential voice for the sector by advising governments on policy and practice in relation to management of the natural environment; and
  • Promoting an integrated inter-disciplinary approach to sustainable management of the natural environment.

Our work is underpinned by a commitment to manage our own activities to minimise our impact on the environment (CIEEM Environmental Policy >>) and to promote equality of opportunity for our members and those who work with us (CIEEM Equal Opportunities Policy >>).
