FCC comment on the triggering of Article 5029 Mar 2017 14:42
Commenting on today’s triggering of Article 50, Paul Taylor, CEO of FCC Environment, said:
“Now that the Government has officially kick-started the process of leaving the European Union, there is an opportunity for the UK to create a set of policies for the waste and resources sector which are clearer in their aims and which better suit our country’s fiscal environment.
“With new research showing us that following EU waste policies post-Brexit could cost British businesses and households an additional £2 billion over the next 20 years, it is vital that the UK Government does not simply settle for the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach which has been previously adopted by EU environmental directives.
“We urgently need clarity as to what post-Brexit policy will look like for the UK waste and resources industry, and would urge the government to continue to foster its relationship with industry so that we can have a sensible discussion about what that should look like.”Back
