Impactful thought leadership 

In the past year our thought leadership and advocacy activities have advanced the role of the profession through engagement and influence with key external stakeholders across the globe. This helps to create demand for the profession’s expertise, develop a sustainable business environment and ensure that the profession continues to work for the public advantage, as defined by our Royal Charter.

Fundamental to our work is positioning chartered surveyors as the thought leader. In essence this means engaging with our members to understand the work and impact that they are making across the many verticals of the built and natural environment as the go-to experts on all matters relating to the industry.

The data produced by our market surveys have been gaining significant traction among key global external stakeholders.

"For RICS surveyors this project is creating work opportunities and training, helping to position RICS and its professionals at the front of the housing decarbonisation agenda." 
Sam Rees – RICS Public Affairs Officer
