Six years on from his landmark intervention describing waste crime as ‘the new narcotics’, Environment Agency Chief Executive Sir James Bevan will outline current efforts by the EA and its partners to crack-down on the criminals inflicting serious environmental, social and economic harm across the United Kingdom. Sir James will set out the policy changes needed to give enforcement agencies a renewed “edge” to catch criminals and clean up communities, as well as supporting investment and innovation by the legitimate waste and resources sector.
Chairman of the ESA and Veolia Senior Executive V-P, Northern Europe, Gavin Graveson, will set out the sector’s perspective on what’s needed to stamp out waste crime and protect infrastructure investment and will also be joined by Managing Director at Eunomia, Mike Brown, to give an overview of the ESA’s studies into the cost of criminal activity to the public purse and reiterate how it undermines the legitimate sector.
Emma Viner, Senior Team Leader at The Joint Unit for Waste Crime (JUWC) will also provide an update on their recent enforcement activity and the inter-agency intelligence-sharing helping to catch criminals engaging in various forms of waste crime.
Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion during which delegates will have the opportunity to put their questions to the speakers.
