Resource Futures, the independent environmental consultancy business, is delighted to announce that it will be participating in the resource economy’s newest event, Resource, which runs from 4-6 March 2014. Sam Reeve, Operations Director, will be taking part in the Tuesday afternoon Great Recovery debate ‘From end of life to new innovation’ alongside Chris Sherwin, SeymourPowell, and David Cornish, AkzoNobel. This is followed by a Resource Futures workshop on Wednesday examining ‘The practical application of data in the materials economy’. The company’s expertise lies in high quality collection, analysis and interpretation of data to provide guidance about the efficient use of material resources and the delivery of innovative behaviour change programmes. “Materials resource efficiency is a vital component of the circular economy. The value of secondary materials in reprocessing, design and manufacturing is not to be under-estimated,” said Sam Reeve. “I am looking forward to contributing to the debate about these issues and the possibilities at Resource. It’s great to see such a mix of designers, procurement specialists and manufacturers coming together to share ideas and drive the circular economy.” Commenting on the announcement, Resource co-founder, Ed Lawson said: “We’re delighted that Resource Futures is supporting Resource, sharing their expertise in materials data and its practical application for companies on the journey to reduce the impact of materials on their businesses. The Resource Futures workshop will be a particularly good way for companies to learn more and ensure they build their strategies on solid, reliable analysis.” Further details about the Resource Futures workshop will be released in February.
