The Future of Surveying
The Future of Surveying
We know the challenges facing the built environment and the surveying profession – now it’s time to act. For over 150 years, the RICS has led the profession through change, enabling members to take advantage of opportunities and manage the risks presented to them. This change is now happening faster than ever, requiring all of us to think strategically about how we deploy our expertise and resources. To continue to provide leadership, the RICS are constantly assessing their role as a standard setter, regulator, educator and global professional body – to deliver confidence to governments, markets and the public alike.
RICS Futures is an action agenda to keep up in a changing world.

The Future of Surveying – Sustainability
Acknowledging the climate crisis is no longer enough – we need to act. The RICS continue to look for other progressive and collaborative ways to affect positive change in the natural and built environment. The development of housing, transport and public infrastructure systems that enable communities to prosper comes at a cost.
RICS is committed to aligning the commercial and public interests in this area and developing practical solutions that enable our profession to help drive positive change.
The Future of Surveying – Talent and Skills
An RICS professional qualifying in 2020 can expect a 40-50 year career. The change they are likely to encounter over this time will mean their ‘entry’ qualification may not provide all the skills they will need to see them through the full trajectory of their career.
We are committed to reviewing and evaluating our education and qualifications framework to ensure they remain relevant – now, and in the future. Find out more: https://www.rics.org/uk/news-insight/future-of-surveying/talent-and-skills/
