INCPEN partners with Resourcing the Future conference
The Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment (INCPEN) has partnered with the Resourcing the Future (RtF) 2020 conference, which will be held on 9-10 June in London.
The conference, which will focus on the theme ‘Resources, Responsibility and Resilience: working together for a world beyond waste’, will explore issues related to the circular economy and the UK’s net-zero ambitions, the concept of ‘responsibility’ regarding producers, the supply chain and consumers, as well as the role of the sector in increasing the resilience of the UK economy through the clean growth agenda.
Discussions will also include the sector’s response to the climate emergency, tackling the single-use challenge and the creation of compelling communications messages.
INCPEN will work alongside, the Chartered Institute of Wastes Management (CIWM), the Environmental Services Association (ESA) and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) to deliver the conference.
Commenting on INCPEN’s involvement, CEO Paul Vanston said: “We are cementing the existing brilliant relationship with CIWM and INCPEN through a formal collaboration on the RtF 2020 conference and working alongside our friends at the ESA and WRAP.
“This collaboration, at this important time, is a big signal of the need for joint work across all our sectors to build resilience and strength UK-wide. It’s within our abilities to reshape our valuable recycling and waste systems so that everyone can be winners – manufacturers, brands, retailers, reprocessors, recyclers, councils, waste management companies, citizens and, most importantly, our planet.”
CIWM’s CEO Sarah Poulter added: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with INCPEN for RtF 2020, one of the most important resources events of the year.
“With Scotland hosting COP26, there has never been a more important – and relevant – time to debate and influence the UK’s resources policy agenda and explore the contribution that the sector can make to driving circular economic thinking forward and creating a world beyond waste.”
