Nigel Harvey to discuss WEEE recast at Rushlight
Nigel Harvey, Chief Executive of Recolight, the UK’s WEEE compliance scheme for the lighting industry, is due to speak about the upcoming changes to WEEE legislation at this year’s Rushlight Show on 31st January at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, in London.
Now in its fourth year, the Rushlight show incorporates an exhibition of innovative clean technology solutions, a Cleantech Entrepreneurs Conference, a Sustainability Conference, and a Cleantech Industry Conference. In addition, Rushlight will be hosting pre-arranged one-to-one meetings of cleantech companies with investors, customers and specific service providers, as well as an Isle of Man Offshore Renewables Breakfast event.
Nigel will be speaking during the Cleantech Industry Conference, which covers the latest technological and market positions of the energy, transport and resources sectors. His presentation will focus on the expected changes to the WEEE Regulations, including the higher targets and how they will affect the industry as a whole.
The event is designed to be of value to organisations that are developing and deploying clean technologies, and sustainability practitioners and others looking to adopt clean technologies and manage their organisation’s environmental footprint proactively. Investors and financiers in clean technologies, local authorities and government departments, analysts, media and other participants of the sector are also expected to attend. Attendees will include representatives from a range of companies including Coca-Cola, Marriott Hotels, University College London, Eurostar, Royal Mail, Addison Lee, BT, Nestle, Innocent Drinks, Shell, and IBM. The event will be followed by a Gala Awards Dinner at the same venue.
Commenting on his appearance at the Show, Nigel said, ‘I’m very much looking forward to speaking about the changes to the WEEE Regulations at the Show. Given that a wide range of industries will be affected by the changes, it is encouraging to see that the Regulations have been given such a prominent position within this forum’.
