Ricardo Energy & Environment will join a high profile panel at a Policy Forum for Wales seminar in Cardiff on Monday to provide insights on how to achieve the goal of zero waste in Wales.
The ‘Moving towards Zero Waste for Wales’ seminar will bring together policymakers and stakeholders to examine the steps that can be taken to minimise the amount of waste produced in Wales. Ricardo Energy & Environment’s Regional Director for Wales Brian Mayne will outline the case for adopting a range of policy measures which focus on making it easier for consumers and businesses to become more resource efficient.
Mr Mayne is set to join representatives from Newport City Council, Constructing Excellence in Wales, Ecodesign Centre and Cylch on a panel to discuss the progress made by Wales towards zero waste. Questions to be addressed by the panellists include whether the steps taken by the Welsh Government to meet its target of a 1.5% reduction of waste every year have been successful and how local authorities can work more efficiently to meet their targets.
The seminar features keynote addresses from Jasper Roberts, Deputy Director, Waste and Resource Efficiency Division, Welsh Government; Beth Winkley, Head, WRAP Cymru (Waste & Resources Action Programme in Wales) and Dr Frank O'Connor, Director of the Ecodesign Centre.
Brian Mayne said: “We are delighted to be a part of this high profile event which will shed a light on the policies and practical steps needed to promote the zero waste agenda. It will be a valuable opportunity to review the progress made by Wales to date and what measures are needed to help achieve the goal of zero waste.”
