RSK sponsors UKELA Annual Conference 2021

June 15, 2021

RSK Group, a Corporate Member of UKELA, is proud to sponsor the 34th UKELA Annual Conference running from 14 to 18 June 2021. For 2021, the week’s top-class content, covering the latest topics in the environmental law field, will be hosted virtually. This means that no matter where in the world you are based, you can still get involved and it is not too late to register to attend.

If you are virtually attending the conference, say hello to RSK’s representatives including our two speakers: Stephanie Wray (Managing Director of Nature Positive (an RSK company)) and James Clarke (RSK ADAS Director).

James will join the debate following the live screening of ‘Kiss the Ground’ on the evening of 16 June (19:30). The full-length documentary narrated by Woody Harrelson sheds light on a “new, old approach” to farming called “regenerative agriculture” that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world.

Later in the week, Stephanie will be joining Plenary 3 as a panellist on Biodiversity & Rewilding (13:45 on Thursday 17 June). The session addresses the progressive movements of Biodiversity Net Gain and Rewilding. For those unfamiliar with these terms, Biodiversity Net Gain is an approach to development where biodiversity is left in a better state than before. When a development may cause an adverse impact on biodiversity, developers are instead encouraged to provide an increase in appropriate natural habitats and ecological features over beyond the area affected by development so that biodiversity loss through development is halted and ecological networks restored. This approach is expected to become mandatory in England via the current Environment Bill. Rewilding is a form of ecological restoration and conservation where habitats are encouraged to return to their natural state, often stimulated by the reintroduction of species. Rewilding projects throughout the UK and abroad have provided striking examples of how biodiversity can be increased, environmental services restored and land health improved.

🤔 Should businesses offer free period products to staff?

We think they should!

💚 We decided to trial this at our offices, offering pads, panty liners and tampons for free. What’s more, all products on offer (and their packaging) are made from sustainable materials.

What do you think of this initiative?
