The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) received its Royal Charter in 1976. It is the professional body that exists to: ‘support the Science, Art and Practice of building services engineering, by providing our members and the public with first class information and education services and promoting the spirit of fellowship which guides our work.' CIBSE is the standard setter and authority on building services engineering.
It publishes Guidance and Codes which are internationally recognised as authoritative, and sets the criteria for best practice in the profession. The Institution speaks for the profession and so is consulted by government on matters relating to construction, engineering and sustainability. It is represented on major bodies and organisations which govern construction and engineering occupations in the UK, Europe and worldwide. CIBSE promotes a sustainable approach to design, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance that minimises the contribution of buildings to climate change and minimises negative impact on the Earth’s resources.
Members belong to a global network of professional support and expertise. A full programme of meetings and events each year offers hundreds of opportunities for members and non-members to meet and learn from colleagues and experts, to explore new ideas and take part in continuing professional development (CPD).
Why CIBSE support the Sustainability Exchange
CIBSE is a keen advocate of sharing knowledge and expertise so the Sustainability Exchange is an obvious initiative to be involved in. We’re keen for our resources to be accessed by broader audiences and to encourage collaboration between professions to achieve higher standards of sustainability in projects.
