Purpose, vision and strategy

“Safer, cleaner and healthier environments for the benefit of all”

This simple vision sits at the heart of everything we do. It guides the decisions we make and the actions we take. We never underestimate this ambition or our responsibility.

What we value

CIEH brings this vision to life through the way we operate as an organisation. Here we’ve identified three key pillars: Professionalism, Partnership and Inclusivity. These values guide our work and ensure that we always meet the needs of the public and members that we serve.

What we do

We are committed to promoting and upholding the principles, standards and good practice of environmental health. We do this – in a variety of disciplines and settings – to improve and protect the public’s health, safety and wellbeing.

How we do it

Our membership, accreditation and professional development opportunities enhance the value and integrity of the environmental health profession.

We ensure that our members’ voices are heard – by the public, our communities and policy makers – and provide the resources, services and opportunities to ensure that they get the most out of our organisation.

Our strategic priorities

Our strategic plan is centred around three core priorities: a sustainable profession; a sustainable organisation; and a sustainable world. View our strategic plan - at a glance.
