We are expecting many new opportunities and a few challenges in 2018.
The GDPR Regulations which come into effect in May; the change in battery weight thresholds expected in April; not to mention the new recycling targets for WEEE and packaging due in Q2, along with the stricter pre-acceptance criteria for all types of hazardous waste; no one either producing, plus, the decision by China to limit or stop the majority of plastic waste from this month will also present a challenge for many, including Concept Management.
Another factor, which I feels needs a mention is the effects of Brexit, which is forcing the UK to adopt a stronger policy as the environment is one of the areas that the UK looks to seek agreement on with Europe along with GDPR and data protection law implications
However, on the positive side, we feel at Concept, that challenges drive the business towards improvements and are looking forward to 2018 and everything that it brings!
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all our clients, customers and our suppliers for their support during 2017.
Mark Wilding, Diretor.
