We are pleased to announce that ECOSA has become one of the first ecological consultancies to be awarded the new Registered Practice status by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM).
CIEEM is the leading professional membership body representing ecologists and environmental managers in the UK and abroad and exists to promote the highest standards of professional practice in the industry.
Registered Practices are ambassadors in their field, promoting high standards and best practice amongst employees, workers and contractors, and sharing their expertise to support others to make a positive impact on the environment. Our new status reaffirms our commitment as a business to advancing the highest standards of practice in ecology, and delivering the best possible outcomes for biodiversity, our clients and the economy.
Becoming a Registered Practice means that ECOSA adheres to a Code of Practice as laid out by CIEEM. Registered Practices pledge to ensure that works are undertaken with openness and integrity, and that works are compliant with current law and guidance. Registered Practices are also committed to ensuring that employees and workers are treated fairly and are supported with training and professional development opportunities.
Registered Practice accreditation therefore provides a benchmark of quality assurance for ecology and environmental management practice. It provides confidence to our clients, prospective clients, partners and the public that we are competent in our field and provide high quality services in accordance with industry standards.
