The challenges and opportunities for decarbonisation of the waste and resources sector

From 06/07/2022 14:00:00 to 06/07/2022 15:00:00 local time
  • According to provisional 2021 data, the waste management sector has reduced its emissions by 46% since 1990, making us one of the leading sectors in terms of progress towards NetZero. However, decarbonisation was achieved predominantly by the movement up the waste hierarchy and ultimately by reducing our reliance on landfill, with increasing levels of materials recycling and energy recovery.


    Now is the time that we must accelerate this journey to ensure that we not only decarbonise our sector in time for 2050 but can also help deliver and facilitate the NetZero transitions in so many other sectors. But given the complex system we are operating in, the changing nature of our policy and regulatory frameworks and increasing customer demand for action, the development and delivery of solutions will be challenging for us all, so we must work together as a value chain to get the best possible solutions, necessary investment and the critical skills needed to deliver on this agenda.


    In this 60-minute webinar our panel of experts will explore the practicalities of reducing the carbon footprints for a diverse and varied customer base within the waste and resources sector. By taking a holistic view of the business operations, we will look at how each stage of the waste hierarchy can work with different aspects of the supply chain to deliver both short term wins and longer-term step changes in performance and expectation.
