The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) has appointed well-known environmental campaigner Tony Juniper as its first president

The former Friends of the Earth director said he was pleased to be working with SocEnv and, in particular, to help promote the important work of chartered environmentalists (CEnvs).

“As the number of people working in the environmental sector grows, it is vital that CEnvs are recognised as professionals in their own right, whatever their role,” he said. “It is very pleasing to be working with SocEnv to champion professionalism in the environmental sector.”

“The society fulfils a vitally important role by setting the standards for professionals working across a range of sectors. It has shown how professional bodies from widely different specialisms can work together on a common agenda.”

SocEnv, which oversees the awarding of CEnv status, confirmed Juniper’s appointment, less than a year after Alex Galloway came on board as chief executive.

Galloway said having Juniper as president would help to boost recognition of CEnv status and help the society to reach into new areas.
