Promoting the Industry

The ESA works closely with other organisations in the sector. For example, the most prestigious conference in the calendar is Resourcing the Future, an event held jointly with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), the Resource Association and WRAP. The Code of Practice for material recycling facilities was drawn up after an agreement between the ESA and Defra.

The ESA stages events at Westminster and has the support of a number of members of Parliament. We regularly commission reports on key issues of relevance to the waste and resource management industry.

An annual calendar of training courses and events is held in partnership with CIWM and the ESA plays a prominent part in FEAD, the grouping of sister associations across the EU.
