Jane Jackson, Education Manager, Northern Ireland Water

Jane Jackson joined Northern Ireland Water in 2007 as Environmental Education Manager. Jane had a degree in Environmental Science and was eager to show how she was putting her knowledge and skills into working practice within the Water Industry.

“Chartership is recognition that I am a competent professional and a member of the respected body of Chartered Environmentalists. It gives colleagues an indication of the level of my knowledge in sustainability and environmental issues. It adds kudos to my position in a small department in a field which is mainly technical and scientific. I am delighted to have achieved this recognition.”

Ashley Moule, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water

Ashley Moule has always worked in the water industry and has a degree in Civil Engineering and Environmental Management. Ashley is already an Incorporated Engineer but sought a professional environmental qualification that was on par with a Chartered Engineer or Chartered Scientist, hence he decided to go down the route of applying to become a Chartered Environmentalist. Ashley believes that every person has an environmental responsibility similar to that of Health and Safety. Ashley said:

“Becoming a Chartered Environmentalist is by no means the end for me, but the catalyst and beginning of me setting myself some new long term goals. As I proceed along this journey I will continue to encourage those who may only consider themselves engineers, to broaden their horizons and consider becoming a Chartered Environmentalist, as it is their decisions that will have an impact upon our future generations’ environment.”

Lynn Cooper, Chief Executive, Institute of Water

“CEnv denotes sound knowledge, proven experience and a profound commitment to sustainable best practice. It is the Chartered Environmentalists, working in many sectors of business, regulation, academia and national agencies who will take a leading role in managing environmental assets and who will play such an important part in the goal of a sustainable world. It is important that the water industry embraces this qualification.”
