CIWM | Beyond Waste: Essential Skills for a Greener Tomorrow report

CIWM essential skills report

Understanding the current skills position and future skills needs of the people within our sector is central to achieving successful and sustainable growth not just for our sector, but for our whole economy. If we can’t resource our services with the right people, with the right skills, at the right time, then the risks are both commercial and environmental. We have an opportunity to be the sector that powers the circular economy, influencing design and manufacturing decisions, at the same time as maximising resource efficiency and material reuse.

Katie Cockburn
Professional Services Director, CIWM

The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) have been active on the green skills topic for years, including their 2021 Skills for the Future report and being asked to represent the resource management sector on the UK Government’s Green Jobs Delivery Group.

Their latest report, ‘Beyond Waste: Essential Skills for a Greener Tomorrow’, collates evidence, views, and informed estimates from the resource management sector on the sector’s required green skills transition.
