Environmental Protection Advisory Panel

This panel advises us on environmental protection policy and campaigns.

CIEH's advisory panels are set up across five key areas of work. Our Environmental Protection Advisory Panel helps us to form our policy position, advises us on consultation responses and submissions as well as feeding in a source of expertise and knowledge to our policy work and campaigns. Where possible, we will also go out to our wider membership for input into policy work. These opportunities will be advertised via Member Connect.

Our panels include representatives from all regions and nations of the UK, so that our work is informed by a variety of perspectives and experiences. Everyone on the panel is a CIEH member and works with us on a volunteer basis.

Current areas of work

Over the past couple of years, the work of the coalition has focussed on improving air quality as well as supporting the development of CIEH’s noise survey and noise-related guidance for practitioners. We are members of two coalitions: Healthy Air Campaign, coordinated by Client Earth, and the Environmental Policy Forum.

Our air quality policy objectives are to:

  • Ensure that there are robust and effective targets for air pollution and a strong level of accountability from central Government
  • Increased focus and initiatives aimed at road transport, with effective measures to reduce harmful emissions as quickly as possible
  • Call for increased resources for local authorities and increased prioritisation of air quality at a local level
  • Ensure that air quality and other environmental protection factors are a key consideration for local planning systems so that aims of long term cleaner energy and carbon emissions reduction goals are achieved
