New webinar series running from Monday 21 March aims to help Welsh businesses realise their Green Ambition
Business Wales is set to help companies take simple and practical steps towards tackling the green agenda with a free webinar on 21 March looking at Non-Domestic Premises Recycling Regulation.
The event takes place from 2pm to 4pm and can be booked at https://wales.business-events.org.uk/en/events/green-ambition-non-domestic-premises-recycling-regulation-ndpr-deep-dive/
Good waste management helps businesses make supply chains more effective, improves ordering, and reduces waste materials and saves money, while sustainability in general is becoming an ever more important issue for businesses as employees increasingly demand high standards from the companies for which they work. Indeed, recent research from Anthesis found that 40% of UK workers were disappointed by the lack of effort and resources put into sustainability by their employer, while customers – and even suppliers – seek out companies with good sustainability credentials.
David apJohn Williams, National Contracts Manager, Business Wales said:
While Wales is already doing incredible things in this area, we know that many businesses haven’t taken any actions yet, and some who have started are still somewhat unsure how to make further significant changes.
The Non-Domestic Premises Recycling Regulation (NDPR Regs) event will feature a session on the regulatory changes in business waste management that come into force during 2023 under the Environment Act (Wales) 2016. The NDPR Regs have wide-reaching implications for businesses across all sectors, requiring an increased level of materials segregation for recycling, bans on certain segregated materials being sent for disposal and a ban on the disposal of food waste to sewer.
The session will be interactive with the option to pose questions via chat, as well as a live Q&A at the with industry experts Circulogic and Business Wales Resource Efficiency experts.
The sessions form part of the Green Ambition Webinar Series, running from Monday 21 March to Friday 25 March 2022, which aims to give businesses the tools to work more sustainably and understand and emphasise the benefits of circular models and moving away from a wasteful culture.
Other events in the series will cover: plastic packaging and manufacturing; product design and innovation; measuring impact and sustainability skills; and market developments and decarbonisation.
We encourage businesses of all sizes to engage with our Green Ambition series and take advantage of our 1-1 consultancy offer to create a bespoke green action plan. It’s a fact that some businesses will only work with those who can demonstrate their green commitments, so it’s in your best interest to start making these changes sooner rather than later, as otherwise there’s a danger you’ll get left behind.
All events can be booked at: Business Wales website.
