The UK Resources Council (UKRC) has today (6 September) announced an extension to its consultation on the content of a Sector Deal.
The deal aims to unlock the sector’s full potential as a vital contributor to a circular economy; net zero carbon targets; and the “green-growth” agenda in the UK.
The new deadline is 6pm (GMT) on Friday October 18 2019, which was moved from the original deadline on Monday September 26.
Global sustainability services and solutions provider, Anthesis, has been instructed by UKRC to facilitate and administer the development of the sector deal, and Anthesis is responsible for running the consultation and analysing the responses.
Those who wish to participate in the consultation survey, and/or find out more about the proposed Sector Deal, can access the consultation documents and survey at the link below.
All of the consultation responses are anonymised and the author of any direct response that UKRC/Anthesis may wish to use verbatim will be contacted in advance for permission.
To ensure we are able to capture as much as we can of this rich and diverse experience, we have taken the decision to extend the consultation deadline by three weeks
Chair of the UK Resources Council, David Palmer-Jones, said: “We have been very pleased with the level of engagement with the Sector Deal consultation since it was launched last month and would like to thank all of those who have participated so far.
“The resources and waste sector is a very broad and diverse sector, with a large number of stakeholders, but we are also intrinsically linked through the circular economy with the many sectors for which we provide services, products and secondary materials.
“To ensure we are able to capture as much as we can of this rich and diverse experience, we have taken the decision to extend the consultation deadline by three weeks.
“I would like to take the opportunity again to encourage individuals and organisations to have their say, and to help shape this deal, which could help our sector unlock its true economic potential.”
In August, UKRC published its initial proposals for a potential Sector Deal between the resources sector and UK Government, which aims to unlock the sector’s full potential as a vital contributor to a circular economy; net zero carbon targets; and the Green-Growth agenda in the United Kingdom.
The consultation responses will help shape further work and the final proposed deal, which UKRC intends to put before the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) at the end of the year.
