Eunomia will be launching two pieces of research at its 15th birthday event on Tuesday 24th May 2016.

Showcasing the diversity and international reach of the company’s work, the two studies present findings on the shape of the European residual waste market and the causes and extent of the problem of plastic in our oceans.

Eunomia Managing Director Mike Brown will present ‘The residual waste market in Northern Europe’, based on a report which extends the methodology used in Eunomia’s well-established Residual Waste Infrastructure Review across key European countries. The study highlights the rapid decline in residual waste arisings that European waste policies seem set to produce, and compares this with the availability of residual waste treatment capacity.

Principal Consultant Chris Sherrington will discuss a new infographic drawing out the findings of Euunomia’s research on marine plastics. The work, ‘Marine plastics: Where do they come from, where do they go?’ aims to cut through some of the confusion on the issue and highlight potential areas for intervention to address this increasingly recognised problem.

The event will also feature award-winning speakers and thought leaders, Tristram Stuart, Sophie Thomas, and Ray Georgeson, covering topics including the food waste scandal and circular economy product design. Eunomia Chairman, Dominic Hogg will also give a perspective on what the next 15 years might hold for the environmental sector.

Over one hundred leaders from across the environmental sector will be gathering in At-Bristol, one of the UK’s biggest science centres with impressive sustainability credentials, to celebrate the growing consultancy’s success so far.

In keeping with the company ethos of reducing waste, the birthday cake created by Food Cycle and Ahh Toots, and Toast Ale being served at the event, have been made using ingredients sourced from surplus food.

Later on, Eunomia and friends will gather for food and drink to raise a glass to the future.
