The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has awarded 300 of its members Chartered Environmentalist status. Michael Brown CIOB deputy chief executive said, “Construction is an environmental industry and its importance to such issues like sustainability, energy efficiency and climate change cannot be underestimated. We know that the buildings we live and work in are the largest source of carbon emissions and our members and other professionals can be part of the solution to that problem.” To become a “Chartered Environmentalist” a CIOB member must be able to demonstrate (through qualifications and experience) competence, knowledge and engagement in sustainable environmental management and development. The CIOB was granted a licence by the Society for the Environment to award Chartered Environmentalist status.
