BIR Dubai 2022 - International Environment Council: Up-to-the-minute analysis of key legislative issues

  • 23 September 2022


The tireless work of the BIR International Environmental Council (IEC) is necessarily multi-faceted, its focus shifting constantly between the array of issues impacting the global recycling industry: from threats to free trade in scrap out of Europe, to providing tools to enhance safety at shredder sites, to persuading policy-makers and legislators that a healthy recycling industry is fundamental to delivering a truly circular global economy.

At the IEC meeting in Dubai on October 17, experts will address all the key legislative issues of the day for recyclers, including an up-to-the-minute status report on the revision of the EU Waste Shipment Regulation provided by Emmanuel Katrakis, Secretary General of EuRIC, the most recent updates on BIR work with the UN and the OECD by Ross Bartley, Trade and Environment Director at BIR, as well as comments by IEC Chairman Olivier François regarding the Waste Framework Directive and decarbonization.
