CIWM Resource Conference Cymru 2019 announces speaker line-up 

28 January 2019

CIWM’s flagship conference returns on the 13 March at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff and promises to deliver a powerful and engaging programme with an impressive line-up of speakers.

Hannah Blythyn AM, Deputy Minister for Housing and Local Government is set to deliver the ministerial address followed by panel debates from a wide range of specialist speakers, including Andy Griffiths (Nestle), Kinsa Sutton (Plastipack Packaging), Stuart Hayward-Higham (Suez), Carl Nichols (Wrap Cymru), and Prof Karel Williams (Manchester Business School).

Exploring the key challenges facing Wales, these panel sessions will discuss the future of resources and waste management over the next decade and provide best practice advice on how we can maximise the benefits of the circular economy.

Attendees will then be able to choose between topical workshops focusing on extended producer responsibility (EPR), deposit return schemes (DRS) and the increasing pressure on local authorities to deliver more with less.

The Conference will be essential to local government practitioners, the waste and manufacturing sector and community business providing inspiration, guidance and practical tips.
