YH0814B-Sustainable Freight Transport Best Practice

As the UK focuses on meeting its air quality targets it falls to Local Government to develop strategies to deal with the consequences of poor air pollution and initiatives to try and tackle problems locally. Many strategies to date have focused on domestic travel using cycle to work schemes, car sharing, bus lanes. It is clear however that sustainable transport needs also to cover how we get our goods into stores, deliveries to our doors and service providers to where they are needed. This session focuses on some of the challenges faced by Local Authorities and Businesses – highlighting best practices and concluding with a workshop session on how sustainable transport can help business be efficient as well as dealing with their environmental impacts.

WEB0814 Effective EIA - Managing Community Impacts

Despite its environmental name EIA has a significant role to play in managing negative and enhancing positive effects on communities that can result from development proposals. Many of the most common 'environmental' topics found within Environmental Statements have direct links to areas of community concern - Noise, Visual, Transport, Air Quality, etc.

As with all EIA the need to influence the design early and effectively is the key to success. This webinar will explore case studies and provide advice from leading consultants who focus on areas where EIA activity and community impacts interact.

The workshop will include group discussions to identify what organisations are already doing in this area, how it is monitored and managed and how drivers, such as the competence and awareness clauses in DIS 14001, could influence future actions.

By attending this workshop you will get a greater appreciation of the action you can take to develop the environment and sustainability capabilities in your organisation. The outcomes of the workshop will feed into the development of IEMA’s forthcoming position statement - Skills for the Sustainable Economy, which will be launched in December.
