ESA is the trade association representing the UK’s resource and waste management industry, which is leading the transformation of how the UK’s waste is managed. They work with all levels of government, regulators and the public to deliver a more sustainable waste and resource management solution for the UK.
Dr Davies said:
“I am delighted to be taking over the Chairmanship of the ESA at such an important time for our industry. As an £11bn industry investing in cleaner ways to turn Britain’s waste into resources, we can be a major part of the UK’s emerging industrial strategy. The ESA has a vital role to play in helping the Government join up its thinking on waste and resources, so that our member companies have a clear post-Brexit framework in which to bring forward a private sector-led package of investment in new waste infrastructure worth £10bn.
I should also like to pay tribute to my predecessor, Peter Gerstrom of Cory Environmental, who was a tireless advocate for our industry during his time as Chairman and helped to drive ESA’s agenda forward.”
Dr Davies will assume ESA’s Chairmanship from Peter Gerstrom of Cory Environmental at the Association’s AGM on 25 November 2016.
