Strategic programme manager, Zero Waste Scotland
As a senior member of Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Management team, Stephen oversees the provision of a variety of support services to local authorities, resource management businesses, and third sector organisations. His focus is on the construction sector, supporting the industry to embed a more ‘circular’ approach to use of materials and ways of working. Stephen’s team supports construction businesses to adopt and evidence the benefits of actions that keep materials in high-value use for longer. Their work is key to influencing decision-makers both within the industry and at national policy level to take impactful action that will generate lasting change.
Stephen has been working in the environmental sector for 30 years. Prior to joining Zero Waste Scotland in 2013 he built up significant experience working with Scotland’s environmental regulators.
Synopsis - Sustainable supply chains
Delivering sustainable projects relies a lot on suppliers – but is it possible to have a completely sustainable supply chain? In this open group discussion, Mhairi and Stephen from Zero Waste Scotland will encourage sharing of your experiences of building a sustainable supply chain and share their own knowledge of how it’s possible to work towards reducing your project’s environmental impact by working closely with suppliers. All delegates are welcome to take part.
