THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar discusses progress and next steps for waste management, recycling and the circular economy in the UK.
It is bringing together policymakers with key stakeholders to analyse the policy outlook and what can be learnt from latest initiatives for improving recycling and waste management at a local level - looking at waste collection processes, developing incentivisation and engagement strategies, innovation and the experience of devolved authorities.
With recycling rates stalling in the UK and the Spring Budget announcing new recycling targets to 2020 for paper, aluminium, steel and wood packaging, sessions discuss the policy priorities and additional approaches that can be adopted by businesses to reduce waste production.
The seminar also comes as the UK launches the world’s first Circular Economy Standards and with EU proposing measures to raise recycling targets to 70% by 2030.
Further sessions discuss the outlook for transitioning towards a more sustainable economy and implementing the Circular Economy Package, including the regulatory impacts of Brexit, fostering producer responsibility, reforming supply chains, developing an efficient energy-from-waste sector and managing e-waste.
