CABE Fellow, Richard Flynn explains the importance of becoming a Chartered Environmentalist with the Society for the Environment for applying knowledge to management of environmental impact.  


Richard Flynn BEng, CEng, CEnv, C.Build E FCABE, MIEI, FIET, MCIWEM, C.WEM, PEng, FIPWS has been working in the private practice since 1986 as an Independent Expert Specialist in engineering and building surveying.


He is a Chartered Water and Environmental Manager (C.WEM) with the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM). He is also Chartered Engineer (CEng) by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and also a Fellow (FIET). He is as well a Fellow of the Institute of Party Wall Surveyors (FIPWS), as well as Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) at the Society of the Environment (SocEnv), and CABE Fellow Chartered Building Engineer (FCABE). 


He was influenced to become a member of CABE by the opportunity to grow his business as a Chartered Environmentalist and credits of becoming a CEng with SocEnv. 


He has had a strong interest since 2004 in the environment and sustainability when he expanded into the wastewater treatment area and witnessed the impact of septic tank systems on groundwater resources.


“I have no hesitation in recommending CEnv Registration to any member of CABE who is interested in protecting, enhancing and safeguarding our environment and works to achieve sustainability in their professional practices. CABE has always been known as the 'Friendly Association' and members will have no difficulty seeking out advice and guidance from their fellow Building Engineers during their journey to achieving CEnv ”

Becoming a CEnv is available on the SocEnv website, where you can also access ‘How to become a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv)’ webinar.
