Understanding environmental management law and practice

24 September 2009

Workplace Law will be holding a new one-day conference - the Introduction to Environmental Management Law and Practice on the 3 November 2009 in the City of London.

New help in understanding environmental management law and practice Research by the Carbon Trust has revealed that British businesses are losing £3.3bn per year on wasted energy due to inefficient equipment.In a survey by the Trust of 1,500 SMEs, almost half (46%) said they were unaware that they could cut energy costs by replacing old equipment and 41% said they have accepted higher energy bills as a fixed cost, rather than paying the up-front cost of replacing old equipment.
A new loans and support scheme which has been launched by the Carbon Trust will go some way to helping businesses scrap their old power-guzzling equipment and replace it with new equipment that’s more efficient and cheaper to run. The Big Business Refit scheme provides expert guidance, plus financial support in the form of £100 million in interest free loans. But for many organisations meeting environmental targets requires an understanding of a complex and confusing raft of UK and European legislation.
To help premises and facilities managers make sense of the sustainability agenda, Workplace Law will be holding a new one-day conference - the Introduction to Environmental Management Law and Practice on the 3 November 2009 in the City of London.
Chaired by environmental law expert Teresa Hitchcock, a Partner and UK Head of Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) within the Litigation and Regulatory Group at DLA Piper UK LLP, the conference will provide insight into more than 20 separate regulations governing energy and environmental law and practice, with practical guidance on implementing management controls to ensure legal compliance.
Drawing on the issues being decided at the Copenhagen COPMOP, which will be held in December and likely developments regarding the climate change and sustainability agenda, the conference will examine all the key issues an organisation needs to address today and looking to the future.
The one-day conference will take place at Bonhill House, in the heart of the City of London.
