The Institution of Royal Engineers joins the EPF

The Environmental Policy Forum (EPF) is delighted to welcome our newest member, The Institution of Royal Engineers (InstRE), a learned society of over 10,000 members.

The EPF is a network of UK environmental professional bodies promoting environmental sustainability and resilience for the public benefit. Taking the forum’s collective’s membership to 14, the InstRE joins fellow professional bodies and learned societies representing experts in ecology, environmental sciences, water, forestry, fisheries, environmental management, health, and resource and land management.

Peter Egan MSc MCGI CEng MIET CEnv FCIOB FInstRE, Chair and research lead of the InstRE Sustainability Forum, said:


“As a learned society, the InstRE works to advance the art and science of military engineering through the regulation and management of the natural and manmade environment, for the good of both nature and humanity. We are a firm believer in taking a science-based approach to addressing climate and environmental issues; being a member of the Environmental Policy Forum will allow our members to share their knowledge and experience gained from international scientific research and operational experience and place this evidence-based insight into a collaborative voice that informs national policy.”


Professor William Pope HonFSE CEnv CSci, EPF Chair, said:


“It’s fantastic to welcome the InstRE as our newest EPF member. As a collaborative initiative working together to influence decision-makers in the UK, the EPF’s greatest strengths are our collective expertise and a united voice and these are only increased through the addition of InstRE to the forum.
This is particularly welcome news in a UK election year, as we establish a consensus on what must be done over the coming five years and beyond. Indeed, the first EPF publication the InstRE will be supporting is undeniably vital, as we set out our ‘Environmental Priorities for the next Government’, to be published in the coming days.”
