As mentioned in a recent article, The European Pathway to Zero Waste (EPOW) is a partnership between the Environment Agency and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) aimed at demonstrating the zero landfill approach in the South East of England.
European Pathway to Zero Waste is a LIFE+ funded programme that is investigating practical ways to achieve zero waste to landfill in the South East of England. It shall share the results with relevant EU regions. The programme will run for just over three years to 31 March 2013.
Zero waste in this context is an approach to supporting the sustainable use of resources by business to benefit both the economy and the environment. It concentrates on reducing, re-using, recycling and recovering energy from waste.
EPOW are hosting a one day conference with several experienced speakers from the public and private sector. The conference theme, ‘A sustainable future for the South East’, makes it highly recommended event for anyone interested in resource efficiency and sustainability. Lord De Maulay, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Resource Management, the Local Environment and Environmental Science, will make the keynote address.
The event takes place between 9.30am and 4pm on 11 February at the etc.venues facility at 1 Drummond Gate, London, SW1V 2QQ.
