GGS is speaking at the EPUK conference in October

GGS is delighted to be presenting at the Environmental Protection UK (EPUK) conference on Wednesday 3rd October 2018. Taking place at ALS Global laboratories at Hawarden North Wales, this event will bring together specialists, local authorities and academics for industry discussion and networking opportunities.

EPUK seminar, British Geological Survey, June 2018EPUK is a national charity that provides expert policy analysis and information on environmental matters. Working with a wide range of stakeholders, including national and local government, businesses, and the general public, EPUK tackles todays environmental challenges and their effects on people and communities. As a front-line organisation with a wide-ranging portfolio of expertise relating to public health, planning, transport, and climate, the charity’s current focus is air pollution from transport, sustainable use of land, and noise reduction. All this considered, it’s no wonder that EPUK is frequently consulted by the government to give policy advice and guidance on environmental protection issues.

Following the very well attended EPUK seminar at the British Geological Survey (BGS) headquarters in June, the momentum continues with the next conference on Wednesday 3rd October. This event will be hosted by ALS Global at their laboratories in Hawarden, North Wales. With a lively agenda and wide range of specialist presenters, this conference is attracting a significant number of delegates.

2018 is also an exciting year as it celebrates the society’s 120th Anniversary. Since 2012 EPUK has been operating as a charity and membership organisation with nine trustees and a number of volunteers across the UK giving their time to tackle environmental issues. One of the benefits of EPUK membership is free access to their regular seminars and events.

GGS John Naylor presenting at EPUK seminar 2016A delegate place for the conference on Wednesday 3rd October is £70 for non-members, which not only covers the price of attending but also includes 12 months membership to EPUK.  This excellent value membership includes access to the three National Policy Committees, EPUK guidance and technical information, and training and awareness opportunities. It also gives you free access to all EPUK seminars and discounted tickets to the annual conference to be held this year on the 15th November 2018.

With the cessation of funding to local authorities for investigation into the remediation and redevelopment of contaminated and brownfield land, it is crucial that environmental protection continues to be seen as a priority.  It is vital that independent organisations such as EPUK continue their excellent work with the support of industry professionals.

GGS has supported EPUK for many years through Technical Director, John Naylor, who sits on the Land Quality Committee of the society. GGS is proud to continue its work with the EPUK.
