The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) has committed itself to pursuing sustainability in its new strategic plan.
The strategic plan, detailing how CIEH seeks to strive for sustainability for the environmental health profession and across all of its own practices, has been supported by a new “at a glance” document setting out the membership body’s priorities and ambitions.
Along with confirming CIEH’s values of inclusivity, professionalism, and partnership, “at a glance” also showcases the organisation’s new approach to direct member representation, uniting with partners to safeguard the environmental and public health workforce, and auditing its own practices to support efforts to reach net zero.
Phil James, Chief Executive of CIEH, said:
“We are delighted to launch our new “at a glance” document showcasing how we will approach the future.
Environmental health has to adapt to the changing landscape, and by evolving into a more flexible and more responsive organisation we will be better placed to successfully meet these new challenges.
Putting member engagement and sustainability at the heart of everything we do is central to our approach. It is our responsibility to build a more sustainable environmental health workforce, to become a more sustainable organisation, and to fight for a more sustainable world.”
