2000 colin church

Colin Church, chief executive of the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, is to head the Circular Economy Task Force. 

He takes over from Sue Armstrong Brown, former policy director at Green Alliance.

The group, convened by Green Alliance, is a forum on resource use in the UK whose members are Aquapak Polymers, Kingfisher, Kyocera Document Solutions, Sinvestec, Viridor, WRAP, and Walgreens Boots Alliance.

It was established more than four years ago and is preapring to consider the role of effective resource management in the UK’s new industrial strategy and Defra’s forthcoming 25-year plan for the environment. 

Church said: “The Circular Economy Task Force has been a key part of the policy debate for the past few years, so I am privileged to be asked to lead it as it continue its work in what’s shaping up to be a fascinating and crucial time for the circular economy debate in the UK.”

Earlier in the month, Church was named in a special task force set up by Newcastle City Council to review its waste strategy.
