Reflections on COP26 from the waste and resources sector

From 10h00 to 11h00
  • The eyes of the world were focused upon Glasgow earlier this month, as COP26 went underway to establish agreements, plans and actions to tackle climate change on a global scale. We now bring together an expert panel of representatives from the resources and waste sector for a 60-minute webinar where they will share reflections and learnings from the global conference.

     

    The role of the waste and resources sector is vital to achieve the overall objectives set out by COP26, but little recognition has been given to the key role of the sector. Our panel consider where the resources and waste sector fits within the context of key topics raised during COP26, sets out the key messages we must take forward, and the actions required to progress on our decarbonisation journey in the coming years.

     

    Tasked with assessing if the plans and actions agreed can be delivered, and how the resources sector must continue to collaborate, support and guide the other sectors in the wider economy, we ask some challenging questions of our panel of industry representatives, including: how do we enable the sector to speak with one voice and give clarity to the government?

     

    This session features speakers from Aldersgate Group, Green Alliance and West London Waste Authority alongside Stuart Hayward-Higham, Technical Development Director for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK, and provides an opportunity for the audience to gain clarity over the requirements of the waste and resources sector as we move forward, and an opportunity for questions to be put to the panel.
