Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES)
The Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES) is a charitable organisation which promotes and raises public awareness of environmental science by supporting professional scientists and academics working in this crucial arena. As a seminal environmental sciences organisation, founded in 1971, the Institution is consulted by the Government and other interested parties on environmental issues. The Institution has strong ties with Higher Education and promotes and supports environmental science and sustainable development in universities and colleges both nationally and internationally.
Professional members (Fellows, Members and Associates) of the Institution of Environmental Sciences must complete 30 hours CPD per year. The IES’ CPD scheme provides a planned and structured approach to the maintenance and upgrading of members’ skills. A member can contribute to their CPD by attending any of the workshops, short courses or seminars held by the IES.
