What to expect at Resourcing the Future 2018
There are just a few weeks to go until the much-anticipated Resourcing the Future 2018 conference (13-14 June), which will bring together the movers and shakers from across the resource and waste sector and provide an unprecedented opportunity for delegates to discuss and shape future resources and waste policy.
Day one opens with a keynote from Resource Minister Dr Thérèse Coffey MP and then explores the key themes set out for the forthcoming Resources and Waste Strategy – smarter manufacturing, smarter design and smarter recycling – with perspectives from big brand names such as AO and Iceland, local government, leading consultants and private sector operators. In the afternoon, interactive breakout sessions will then look in more detail at current hot topics including extended producer responsibility, deposit return and waste crime.
Day two will focus on the opportunities and challenges ahead from a materials and markets perspective and delegates will have exclusive first access to the findings of two research projects on secondary materials, markets and policy interventions. Tackling ‘avoidable’ plastics waste, the latest intel on export markets and measures to increase the UK’s domestic reprocessing infrastructure are also on the agenda.
So regardless of your role within the supply chain, don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to come together with key thought leaders and policy makers and have your say on the future of the resources and waste sector.
