CaSE are delighted to welcome the IES as new organisational members of CaSE

The Institution of Environmental Sciences is an organisation which promotes and raises public awareness of environmental science by supporting professional scientists and academics working in this crucial arena. As a seminal environmental sciences organisation, founded in 1971, the Institution is consulted by the Government and other interested parties on environmental issues. The Institution has strong ties with Higher Education and promotes and supports environmental science and sustainable development in universities and colleges both nationally and internationally.

Adam Donnan, CEO of the Institution of Environmental Sciences, said:

“At the IES we strive to stand up for science, scientists and the natural world. We nurture an informed, trusted and active environmental science profession to positively contribute to society. CaSE has a strong track record of promoting the scientific voice, and we are very pleased to be joining an organisation whose aims and aspirations closely align with our own. I’m looking forward to working with CaSE and its membership.”

Dr Sarah Main, Executive Director of the Campaign for the Science and Engineering, said: 

“I am delighted to welcome the Institution of Environmental Sciences to CaSE. The IES brings high quality research evidence to environmental issues, informing policy thinking on topics of significant public interest, for example on clean air. I look forward to working with the institution to understand their community’s needs and priorities. This will expand and enrich CaSE’s voice, enabling us to better convey the needs of science and engineering in all its settings.”

CaSE are keen to ensure the needs of the whole science and engineering community are being heard at the highest levels of government. If you are interested in finding out more about organisational membership of CaSE please do contact us.
