Our memberships play a key role in supporting the development of our organisation by providing access to the latest developments in legislation, industry leading training and providing a vehicle to raise our views on issues effecting our industry.
EIC – The Environmental Industries Commission (EIC) was launched in 1995 to provide environmental technology equipment and services suppliers with a strong and effective voice to influence the debate on the future of the industry among policymakers in Westminster, Whitehall and Brussels. It aims to promote constructive co-operation between the regulated, the regulators and the UK`s environmental technology suppliers who serve them. Over 300 companies are members of the EIC. Geo-Environmental has attended key meetings and contributed information. From the 1st November 2012 EIC is now being managed by ACE.
AGS – The Association of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS) is a non-profit making trade association established to improve the profile and quality of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. The membership comprises UK organisations and individuals having a common interest in the business of site investigation, geotechnics, geoenvironmental engineering, engineering geology, geochemistry, hydrogeology, and other related disciplines. We use the AGS to help us drive improvement and development within our own professional disciplines.
CL:AIRE – (Contaminated Land: Applications in Real Environments) was created with the backing of the UK government in 1999 as a not-for-profit Company to encourage the demonstration and research of practical solutions for the clean-up of contaminated land, and to provide a sustainable alternative to disposing of waste in landfill sites. In effect, this enables soil to be “recycled” for use on its original site, instead of having to be removed and deposited in landfill sites. Its purpose is to promote the sustainable remediation of contaminated land and groundwater. Geo-Environmental makes good use of CL:AIRE training courses and through them has one qualified person for using the development industry code of practice for materials management of construction waste, with another trained and awaiting certification.
ACE – The Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) represents the business interests of consultancy and engineering industry in the UK. It has approximately 550 firms as its members. These firms range from small to large and operate across many different disciplines. Many of these are Geo-Environmental’s customers; structural engineers, construction companies and building consultancies.
IEMA – The Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA) is the largest professional membership body for the environment with over 15,000 members working across all industry sectors. Their work is of particular relevance to Geo-Environmental’s environmental impact assessments (EIA’s). Their involvement with energy management and water conservation also fits well with the Geo-Environmental Sciences service offerings.
