Webinar | Holding firm through uncertain times - ethical principles in environmental practice

Published 28th July 20 12:00 AM

This is a webinar session that CEnvP applicants and environmental professionals across Australia and New Zealand cannot afford to miss. Presented by Jon Womersley and Alan Chenoweth (both Fellows of the Institute and CEnvP’s with decades of experience and familiarity with ethics) for a practice-oriented discussion of professional obligations in uncertain and changing times.

The presentation will cover:

  • Ethical practice and its importance to professional reputation, especially during times of uncertainty;
  • Juggling ethics with other professional obligations to clients, staff, other stakeholders and the professional and the community - does the balance change due to the current circumstances;
  • The ethical principles that should remain absolutely non-negotiable and why;
  • The ethics of competitive tendering, conflicts of interest and accepting unorthodox instructions from clients; and
  • Hypothetical scenarios based on common and emerging ethical dilemmas in professional environmental practice.

Meet the speakers:

Jon Womersley: A Certified Environmental Practitioner with more than 30 years experience advising on environmental and natural resource management, regulatory compliance, due diligence, community engagement and dispute resolution.

Alan Chenoweth: Alan is a Certified Environmental Practitioner and Registered Landscape Architect, now semi-retired, with qualifications in agricultural science, landscape architecture and planning, expertise in plant ecology, conservation, environmental planning and urban issues, and a Churchill Fellowship in social housing.
