Inaugural Workplace Law Environmental Management Law and Practice seminar

The first Environmental law seminar from Workplace Law, which was held this week, drew a full house of delegates from a wide range of public and private sector disciplines.


In a packed programme, expert speakers covered a wide range of sustainability issues, ranging from UK and EU climate change legislation to waste management.


The event, which was chaired by Workplace Law’s Rob Castledine, kicked off with an overview of the key drivers in climate change legislation and regulation, including a useful briefing on the development of civil as well as criminal proceedings.


This was followed by a comprehensive description of waste management regulations, including packaging waste, water quality and the WEEE directive.


Delegates were also updated with the imminent changes to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) as well as information on how to achieve Environmental Management Systems ISO 14001.


Said Rob Castledine:


“The aim of the day was to both learn how we can turn compliance issues into 'positives', and to give delegates the tools needed to build on their understanding of this increasingly important area.”
