With the Government’s current interest in the environment and all things ‘green’, the legislation that affects the further and higher education sector is changing all the time. With new Acts of Parliament, changing regulations and updates to guidelines, it is hard for anyone to keep track but knowing how to comply is a must. These updates are only accessible to EAUC Members.

In this issue:

  • Site Waste Management Plans Regulations are scrapped despite heavy objection
  • DECC opens a Consultation on the Carbon Reduction Commitment
  • Scotland prepares for new Waste Regulations requirements from January 2014
  • Environment Agency releases their Sustainable Business Report 2012
