Excellence in Environmental Practice
Our transition to a sustainable society depends on achieving good environmental outcomes in everything we do, and how we do it. Improving environmental outcomes depends on continuously building the capacity of environmental practitioners and lifting standards in environmental practice.
The Environment Institute is a leading professional body in Australia and New Zealand for environmental practitioners, and promotes independent and interdisciplinary discourse on environmental issues. On all issues and all projects the Institute advocates best available environmental practices to be delivered by competent and ethical environmental practitioners.
The Institute was formed in 1987 to meet the needs of environmental practitioners. It is a non-profit, politically independent professional association. The Institute is multi-disciplinary in membership and provides scope and opportunity for professional and academic interchanges across all sectors of the diverse environmental industry.
The Institute has a key role within the Australian and New Zealand communities as a major contributor to the formulation of effective and responsible policies in the broad field of environmental management. The practical consequence of the Institute’s involvement in environmental management reform processes is a long-term improvement in the quality of environmental management. This must, in turn, lead to a better protected and managed global environment as Institute members pursue their endeavours and apply their skills to local environments.
Membership of the Institute demands the achievement and maintenance of the highest standards of professional competence and diligent adherence to principles of ethical practice.
By joining the Environment Institute you receive some unique benefits, offered to members only or at a discounted price for members.
