Tom Giddings, executive director of Alupro, will share his thoughts on optimising aluminium packaging recycling at the 2023 CLAIRE Wales Group Conference. Taking place on 17 November at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Wales, the event will explore what the future of recycling looks like and the role of collaboration in accelerating progress.
Bringing together the group’s fourteen local authority members, the conference will see a number of high-profile keynote speakers take to the stage, alongside a series of Q&A networking sessions. Delegates will also include representatives from a variety of other Welsh and English bordering councils.
As part of his presentation, Giddings will explore aluminium packaging recycling systems across Wales, examining what is already working well and where further progress could be made. ‘Aluminium Packaging and Sustainability – It’s good now, how could it be great?’ will take place at 1.40pm. The Alupro team, as sponsors for the event, will also be on hand throughout the day to showcase and discuss the latest programmes.
Commenting on the event, Giddings said: “The CLAIRE Conference is a great opportunity to connect with local authorities across Wales to discuss resource efficiency. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on where Welsh councils are already leading the way, as well as exploring how we can build on strong foundations to create an even better future.
“The CLAIRE Wales Group was designed to encourage councils to work collaboratively to reach targets more efficiently, so we’re looking forward to drawing on our experiences to demonstrate the positive impact collaboration can have. It’s also great to see the event being held in Newport, last year’s top UK city for recycling – a subtle nod to championing best practice.”
