THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will discuss progress and next steps for waste policy in Wales.
The conference will be an opportunity to examine new elements of the Towards Zero Waste strategy (TZW), due this summer - including its fit with the Well-being of Future Generations Act and the Environment Act 2016 - and to assess the strategy’s contribution to the Welsh Government’s One Planet Goal and to the sustainable management of natural resources in Wales.
Delegates will also look at the opportunities created in conjunction with the TZW strategy by the renewed government commitment to the circular economy model in the £6.5 million fund, as well as the challenges that the Strategy presents for businesses in Wales - looking at issues around added costs, the infrastructure needed to manage waste in Wales and future direction of regulation.
Further sessions consider the latest thinking on reducing barriers to reducing municipal waste in Wales - with particular attention to the impact on local authorities in Wales of China’s ban on importing foreign waste.
