A major new report, Professional Perspectives on Waste and Resource Management, prepared for the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) was launched by the 2012/13 CIWM President John Skidmore in front of 200 guests at the House of Commons last week.
Professional Perspectives on Waste and Resource Management provides a detailed picture of waste and resource management across the UK and Ireland and draws on the views of CIWM members and the Institution regarding future issues, challenges and opportunities.
The report provides an important insight into the current performance of this dynamic sector, and sets a marker against which changes and achievements can be measured.
The report was authored by Nia Owen, Brian Mayne and Andy Maunder. It can be downloaded for free from the CIWM website: http://www.ciwm.co.uk/web/FILES/Technical/CIWM_Report_2012.pdf
Dr Adam Read, AEA's Practice Director for Waste Management & Resource Efficiency, commented:
‘The launch was a real success and this influential report, which has drawn together insights from the UK’s leading professional waste managers, sets the benchmark for future policy and progress to be measured against.’
