Stephen Law

Stephen Law

Non-executive Director

Stephen was, until August 2018, the Executive Director of the Environmental Monitoring Group (EMG), an NGO established in 1991 with the aim of facilitating a more active and empowered civil society engagement with environmental policy and decision making processes. He is currently self-employed but still serves on EMG’s Board of Trustees. Stephen’s career began as a chemical engineer in the waste-water treatment field, but soon took a sho’t left when he became manager of a suite of rural worker-owned furniture co-operatives, and then as project co-ordinator at EMG in 1993. He was EMG’s director from 1999.

CER fills a unique and much needed role in ensuring that civil society has the knowledge and tools to hold government and industry accountable to environmental laws and policies. I am privileged in having served on the CER Board since its inception. It gives me the opportunity to share my 25 years of experience in the sector.
