Resourcing the Future Conference 2022 explored the readiness of the resources and waste industry to be a climate crisis responder.

On the first day of the conference, we scoped out where the sector currently is in tackling the climate emergency and discuss the different ways we can play a part in stepping up to this unprecedented challenge. A series of thought-provoking case studies brought us up to date on reuse and its successful implementation in a range of settings, as well as the latest technologies being trialled to bring DRS into the 21st Century.

"[RTF21] made me feel proud to be a part of the waste sector and the part we have to play in the next decade."
