Resourcing the Future Conference

Delivered in partnership by CIWM, WRAP, the ESA and INCPEN, the Resourcing the Future Conference returns for 2020 on 15-16 December, providing an unmissable opportunity to assess and understand the key issues shaping the debate around resources and waste and the circular economy.

Over two days, we’ll explore a range of cutting-edge topics, including the contribution that sustainable resources and waste management can make in progressing toward a circular economy and achieving the UK’s net zero ambitions; how the concept of ‘responsibility’ – in the context of producers, the supply chain, and consumers – is influencing policy thinking and behaviour; and the role of the sector in increasing the resilience of the UK economy as a whole through the clean growth agenda.

We’ll also explore how the sector develops its ‘climate emergency’ response, tackling the ‘single use’ challenge, and creating compelling and influential communications messages.

Join government representatives, thought leaders and industry experts to discuss and debate these pressing issues, take part in interactive workshops, and network with over 200 contacts from across the sustainability, resources and waste sector at this flagship event.
