Resourcing the Future 2019

Resourcing the Future 2019 conference

We will be delivering the leading annual UK conference on resources and waste in partnership with the Chartered Insitution of Wastes Managment, Environmental Services Association, and the Resource Association.

Taking place on 12 and 13 June 2019 in London, the debate-led programme this year will cover many of the significant areas of future policy proposed under the Government’s recently published resources and waste strategy, including the significant reform of packaging producer responsibility and the future of plastics, and the ambition to ensure that the UK can better realise the economic benefits of high quality secondary materials.

The conference brings together around 150 public and private sector resource, waste and sustainability professionals, opinion formers, policy experts, and academics from across the UK and overseas.
