Giving the Green Economy a Voice
27 March 2017 by Peter Chiodo
Waste management once meant waste disposal. Now it’s a central plank in the worldwide campaign to preserve and conserve natural resources once thrown away after one use, and reduce the human and industrial detritus littering the planet.
CSG’s operational dedication to the Waste Hierarchy – Reduce, Recycle, Reuse – is firmly part of the company’s culture and it seeks to work alongside other organisations sharing its beliefs.
That’s why it has become a member of the Environmental Industries Commission (EIC) – “the voice of the green economy” – which was founded in 1995 to represent businesses which provide the technology and services that deliver environmental performance across the economy.
Members come from all parts of the environmental technology and services sector including those responsible for land clean-up and remediation, waste management and recycling, environmental monitoring and laboratory analysis and pollution control – all sectors in which CSG is active.
Apart from waste managers, the membership includes other leading players in their specialist fields including technology manufacturers, developers, universities and consulting engineers.
The EIC says it believes “in the need for the UK to achieve high environmental standards in a cost-effective manner.”
The organisation seeks to influence national environmental policy and regulation, promote the value of the sector, support green technology start-ups and help set technical standards in specialised fields.”
Said CSG managing director Neil Richards: “We see ourselves as an environmental services company first, with a key role to play in the management of industrial waste. The EIC is an important body working to ensure that caring for the environment is a central consideration in the nation’s economic programmes and we’re delighted to be part of it.”
