ICE Urges 'Leadership' on Climate Change
22 March 2018
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) says it is asking members to “show leadership” on environmental issues after being called on to demonstrate how it is helping to combat climate change.
Legal & General Investment Management has written to several professional bodies to ask them to explain how they have made a deliberate effort to embed climate change mitigation and adaptation into their qualifications.
In response, ICE director general Nick Baveystock said: “The issue of climate change, and more broadly sustainability, are something that the ICE takes incredibly seriously and has done for many years.”
As a member of the Society of the Environment, the ICE can award the title “Chartered Environmentalist” to qualified members. “Becoming a Chartered Environmentalist confirms an engineer’s credentials as an expert in environmental matters, giving employers, clients and peers trust in their professional capabilities,” Baveystock said.
