New resources and Waste Strategy - what retailers need to know

Following our booked-out roundtable with Valpak on the Government's new Resources and Waste Strategy in January 2019, we’ve produced a podcast with Peter Andrews, Head of Sustainability Policy at the BRC, experts from Valpak - the leading provider of environmental compliance - and DEFRA, so you can hear first-hand what the Strategy entails and implications for retailers. 

In this podcast Linda Crichton, Technical Advisor at DEFRA explains the three key parts of the Strategy and new regulations which will be subject to consultation in 2019.

Adrian Hawkes, Valpak’s Director of Policy, helps to unpick what some of this might mean in practice for retailers, including the cost implications, and the pros, cons and likelihood of different models of implementation. You can visit the Valpak website - - for further information on these issues.

If you’re a retail member of the BRC, you can also join the CSR member community to gain information, advice and practical resources on this and other CSR and sustainability issues.
