Coventry, England (18 July 2017)

At the recent Society for the Environment AGM, the Council unanimously elected Professor Will Pope HonFSE CEnv as Chair of the Society for his second spell in the position.

The Society is delighted to elect Will as Chair, and are very much looking forward to continuing with, and developing upon, the progress made over recent years. The Society and its registrants have increasingly key roles to play now, and in future years, as the environment and sustainability come to the forefront of decision making processes across sectors.

The Society is enthusiastic in its aims to further increase the voice and status of Chartered Environmentalists and Registered Environmental Technicians, as well as the Society as a whole for the public benefit.

Will replaces Dr Peter Matthews CBE OBE HonFSE CEnv who completes his second term as Chair of the Society, which spanned between July 2015 and July 2017. Peter is continuing his involvement with the Society through his election as Chair of the Remuneration Committee.

Alongside Peter, Will was a member of the initial, ambitious group who formed the Society for the Environment in 1999. Since then, he has held a number of key roles in the Society including Chair, Chair of the Remuneration Committee and a member of the Honorary Fellows Panel and Audit and Risk Assurance Committee.

Will has a wealth of experience, leadership and expertise gained from senior roles within industry, the NHS and academia, including at chairman and chief executive level. He was CEO of the UK’s largest integrated health, safety and environmental business for 10 years and has been one of the UK’s leaders in managing and developing environmental technology companies over the last 35 years. In addition, he has been a Council member and Chair of a Licensed Body of the Society, the Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES), and was elected as a Vice President of IES in 2005.

CEO of the Society for the Environment, Dr Emma Wilcox, commented;

“I look forward to working with our new Chair and drawing from his knowledge and experience to achieve further progression for the Society and develop opportunities for our registrants.”
