Blog from Dr Adam Read, External Affairs Director for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK

Its been a busy few weeks since the Christmas holidays ended, and quite a bit of my focus has been on the government’s plans for a post COVID green recovery, in particular the government’s Environment Audit Committee’s call for evidence on green skills which I submitted last week on behalf of SUEZ recycling and recovery UK.

Interest in green skills is beginning to boil!

This issue isn’t a one-off interest, it is one of the primary concerns of the UK Resources Council as they look to identify what end markets will need resources from 2030 onwards, so that the waste and resources sector can realign its collection, handling and treatment systems to make these secondary resources readily available.
