Grateful thanks are expressed to the European Commission, DGV, for their support of the ‘Careers in the Environment across Europe’ initiative. In addition, thanks are also extended to BP Oil, Marks and Spencer plc and the National Rivers Authority, without whose support this initiative would not have been possible. The continued interest and support of these organisations is greatly appreciated.
Advice on the issues which should be addressed when examining the development of environmental employment was received from the Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (IEEM), and the European Federation of Environment Professionals (EFEP), in particular the former EFEP co-ordinator, Martin Cahn.
The support and encouragement of London Guildhall University, in particular, Dr D.R. Hopkin, Vice Provost of London Guildhall University, was invaluable. Grateful thanks are also extended to Robert Hale for his editorial and DTP assistance.
