Event - Sustainability in Wales: Impact of Policy on Public Bodies and Business

This event will take place on Thursday, 27th March 2014 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Cardiff, Meridian Gate, Bute Terrace, Cardiff. This event is CPD certified. Delegates at this seminar will consider a range of policies affecting sustainability in Wales. It is scheduled to precede the introduction of the Future Generations Bill to the National Assembly for Wales - expected in summer 2014 - and as the Welsh Government is expected to put forward its planned Environment (Wales) Bill - designed to provide a more integrated management of the environment in Wales.

The conference will draw together policymakers in the Welsh Government and more widely with stakeholders including businesses from sectors affected by the issues, energy and environmental groups, academics, local government and other interested parties. Delegates will discuss the content and impact of both Bills as well as the ongoing development of the Sustainable Development Charter. The proposed new duties for public bodies regarding sustainability and the establishment of an independent sustainability body for Wales will also be discussed, as will the progress towards the Welsh Government's target of achieving zero waste for Wales by 2050.
