WAMITAB SUPPORTS WASTE INDUSTRY APPRENTICE SCHEME


A new apprentice scheme for the waste industry has received support from WAMITAB. Due to launch in September 2015, the scheme will see a number of leading waste companies working together. “Whilst full details are still to be shared, we welcome the news that Viridor, FCC, Cory, Veolia and Grundon will be working together to develop a trailblazer apprenticeship for the waste sector,” stated Chris James, WAMITAB Chief Executive. “It is critical that the industry gets behind the initiative to ensure that it is relevant, delivers what employers want and complies with the rigorous standards of the relevant government agencies.” www.wamitab.org.uk


AD VITAL FOR FUTURE ‘SMART CITIES’, REPORTS GIB


AD has been highlighted as one of the top ten vital renewable technologies for smart cities in a recent Green Investment Bank report, ‘Smarter, green cities: ten ways to modernise and improve UK urban infrastructure’. Shaun Kingsbury, Chief Executive of the UK Green Investment Bank, notes: “Each of the technologies we profile in this report is tried and tested and available to be deployed, at scale, right across the UK, straight away.

REVIEW TO ASSESS IMPACT AND FUTURE OF GIB


The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) have commissioned NERA Economic Consulting to conduct a review of the impact of GIB since its inception in 2012 and to evaluate its future role. We have responded, stating that we would like to see the GIB take a wider role and look at ways to fund smaller scale projects on industrial sites and farms. We will keep members updated as the outcomes of the review are revealed. www.greeninvestmentbank.com
