Circular economy workshops
IEMA members with an interest in sustainable resource management and the circular economy came together for two afternoon workshops in April to provide their insight on the Resources and Waste Strategy for England (RWS), published in December of last year.
The workshops, chaired in London and Birmingham by IEMA policy and engagement lead Marc Jourdan, focused on four key areas of the strategy that are subject to consultation: the introduction of a deposit return scheme for disposable beverage containers, extended producer responsibility for packaging, reforming the regulations for duty of care for waste carriers, and transposition of the Circular Economy Package.
The sessions ran in parallel to a webinar series on RWS, which began on 2 April with an introductory session by DEFRA.
