The objective of this event is to consider the impact of the circular economy package including in the context of Brexit. The afternoon will start with an overview of the circular economy from a legal perspective. Trevor Nicholl, Senior Vice Chair, CIWM, will then lead a panel discussion.  Each of our speakers will make a short 5 minute presentation, which will then be discussed and debated by the rest of the panel. Audience members will be invited to join the debate.

This seminar aims to bring together experts from throughout the waste industry and their advisors to create the opportunity for valuable discussion and debate about the real implications and impacts of the circular economy package. We hope that professionals working in all areas of the waste industry will find this event informative and will feel able to get involved to make the most of the wealth of knowledge and experience on the panel. 

Refreshments will be available once the speakers have concluded to enable delegates to continue their discussions in an informal space and to allow networking. 


Joanna Fox, Solicitor at Ashurst LLP will set the scene on the current legal landscape, including consideration of waste and resources strategy from the perspective of government commitments made in relation to the circular economy, irrespective of the Brexit outcome.
