All Party Sustainable Resources Group

March 4, 2015

Viridor has teamed up with the UK Parliament All Party Sustainable Resources Group (APSRG) to bring together leading resource and recycling policy makers, regulators and practitioners at a special meeting in the Palace of Westminster on Monday 9th March looking at how the next parliament can boost Britain’s circular economy.

Join us for the event:

Boosting Britain’s Circular Economy: Policy Priorities for the next Parliament
9th March | 4.00pm – 6.00pm | Thames Pavilion, Palace of Westminster

This parliamentary seminar will, in partnership with Viridor, examine what a more ambitious EU Circular Economy Package could look like and how the next Government should set and achieve circularity goals. With the announcement in December 2014 that the EU is to withdraw the EU Circular Economy Package set by former Environment Commissioner Janez Potocnik, this event will seek to explore what a new package, promised by the end of 2015, could look like. It will also examine what the UK Government should do to accompany this package and meet its targets.

Speakers:

• Ian McAulay, Chief Executive, Viridor

• David Baldock, Chief Executive, Institute for European Environmental Policy

• Prof Paul Ekins, Director, Institute for Sustainable Resources, University College London

• Baroness Scott of Needham Market, Chairman of the House of Lords EU Sub Committee D – Agriculture, Fisheries, Environment and Energy

• David Taylor, Director of Contract Services, Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority

Further speakers to be confirmed.

This event will be chaired by Rt Hon Caroline Spelman MP.
