  • BSI & CIWEM event - Environmental performance evaluation, helping business deliver more than just savings

    09.00 - 13.00 | 106-109 Saffron Hill, London, EC1N 8QS

    FREE TO ATTEND      

    ISO 14031, the standard for environmental performance evaluation, helps organizations get the most out of managing their environmental impacts with tools to identify, measure, evaluate and communicate environmental performance. Improved environmental performance management provides greater assurance to stakeholders, potential cost savings and helps enhance credibility and reputation in the marketplace.

    This event will detail application of the standard to achieve real business value, reduce risks, and how an organization can best respond to regulation. It will cover:

    • what environmental performance evaluation is and what it can do for your organization;
    • how the standard complements ISO 14001 to help continual improvement;
    • how your organization can implement a better means of managing and reducing business and regulatory risk; and more.

  • Can We Afford NOT to Monitor Priority Pollutants?

    Society of Chemical Industry

    The aim of this conference is to bring together leading experts in the field of priority substances listed in Annex X of the Water Framework Directive (WFD).

    The event will discuss potential issues associated with the implementation of the Directive 2013/39/EC relating to priority substances in the field of water policy. It will also will help to disseminate information on the development and validation of new test methods for monitoring priority pollutants.

    The cost of the sampling and analysis is going to be excessive unless some sanity is brought to bear on the proposed environmental quality standard limits associated with this new Directive. This meeting will aim to establish what is cost-effectively feasible.

    This event will interest all stakeholders with a responsibility or interest in environmental water quality. In particular, water companies, regulators, NGOs, research organisations, academia and land and water agencies.
