Environmental Event Looks to Uncover Latest Legislation

A local environmental network dedicated to supporting businesses is inviting organisations from across the region to its forthcoming event which is set to lift the lid on a series of important regulations.

As part of an annual initiative aimed at supporting businesses through changes in legislation, the Business Environmental Support Scheme for Telford (BESST) will be hosting a breakfast session on Wednesday 24th September at the University of Wolverhampton which will help organisations navigate through the new guidelines and updates in policy.

The event, which will take place between 8.30am and 11.30am, will be dedicated to helping businesses keep on top of changes to environmental and health and safety legislation and help them make preparations for impending policies. The morning’s speakers will include members of the Environment Agency who will talk about Duty of Care auditing waste streams, and the new Love Your Rivers campaign, with key note speaker, Richard Clarke of Cedrec, outlining fundamental new regulations.  

Jaclyn Kitson, BESST Network Coordinator, explained: “Each year we devote one of our breakfast meetings to recent legislative changes, and we always receive a fantastic response. The event offers a valuable opportunity for attendees who are not completely au-fait with the new regulations to become completely conversant and receive valuable information applicable to their business.

“We’re delighted to welcome a number of speakers to the session who will provide updates on a series of changes, as well as Richard Clarke who will run through the introduction of the ESOS legislation which is set to affect a number of our attendees, with Cedrec’s Director, Gareth Billinghurst rounding proceedings off with everything you need to know about the changes to Health and Safety policy. 

“Spaces are naturally limited so I’d urge anyone interested in attending to get in touch to reserve their seat either by calling 01952 567 578, or emailing [email protected] ,” concluded Jaclyn.
