ESA ON TWITTER
ESA has a strategic vision for a sustainable, low-carbon economy that depends on quality recycled materials and world-class resources and waste management.
This vision matches the Government’s own sustainability goals set out in its Industrial Strategy, Clean Growth Strategy, 25 Year Environment Plan and the Climate Change Act.
To develop the practical application of our vision, ESA has more than a dozen Working Groups to consider policy positions on a range of issues affecting the waste management industry and the wider economy. These include regulation, health & safety, types of waste, communications and finance.
Our most recent policy papers are listed below. A full list dating back to 2002 is in Publications)
