The presentations from the WEEE Forum conference in London are available here.
The 4th WEEE Forum Conference will be held in London at Guoman Tower Hotel on 20-21 September 2012, hosted by Repic, the UK’s largest WEEE producer compliance scheme.
The WEEE Forum conference is held once every two years to discuss latest developments in the area of WEEE management. In particular, this year’s event will focus on the social impacts of the Directive: employment, environment and the economy, and how all three can be sustainably developed.
As national governments across the EU begin the process of transposing WEEE Directive recast into national law, the event will provide a platform for discussion and debate surrounding these three key pillars.
The event will also provide a forum for the sharing of knowledge and best practice for business people, WEEE management professionals, political influencers, and decision makers representing the various stakeholders from the electronic waste management sector across Europe, helping key decision and policy makers as we head into the transposition process.
On Thursday 20 September, a range of key note speakers will discuss the key points about the Recast. The speakers include Antonio Tajani, European Commissioner for Industry, Lord Taylor of Holbeach, Parliamentary under Secretary of the UK Government Department responsible for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), Gunter Pauli, Zero Emissions Research & Initiatives (ZERI) and Helmut Kolba, Remondis.
On Friday 21 September, a number of round table events featuring key industry figures will also discuss other important aspects of the WEEE (WEEE Economy, Environment, Employment) regime, including illegal WEEE shipments, critical rare earths and the future of producer responsibility. Attendees will be able to learn more about the new requirements the Recast is likely to impose; as well as how it will differ from the current regime and the extent to which the changes will affect the various stakeholders within the system.
