More information on the UK Government travel guidance can be found on the government website

If you are unable to travel due to these restrictions and therefore you cannot attend the event physically we can offer you a virtual option to join the event. Details of which will be sent to delegates at 4:00PM (GMT) on Tuesday 30th November via follow up email.

SAE Media Group’s eagerly awaited 14th Annual Energy from Waste conference will bring together international waste management operators, developers, bankers, private equity financiers, technology providers and industrial end users for two days of intensive networking, discussing developments that are needed in technology, financing and infrastructure to ensure the solutions are available to fast track the growth of the industry worldwide.

With case studies from the leading Energy from Waste plants within UK and Europe the event will give an overall look into all aspects of running a successful facility. We delve deep into both small scale and large scale production and understand the benefits and constraints found within both size projects, in addition to finding out how new innovations can maximise value and optimise investment returns. A focus on how Energy from Waste sits within the UK’s ambition on the road to net zero and how technology within the Carbon capture and storage market is an essential part of that journey. With updates on how legislation and policy can stimulate more investment and how Brexit will affect the future of the market this comprehensive conference remains the an essential calendar date for those in the Energy from Waste community

Waste Management World - Official Publication of ISWA

Official Media Partner

Waste Management World is the official magazine of the International Solid Waste Management Association (ISWA). Both in print and online Waste Management World covers every aspect of the industry for waste management professionals. Coverage includes the latest products and technology, as well as policy and legislation affecting the industry. There are also regular news updates and detailed features looking at some of the most innovative projects being developed around the world. ISWA is an independent non-profit making association, working in the public interest to promote and develop sustainable waste management worldwide. ISWA has members around the world and is the only worldwide association promoting sustainable and professional waste management.


Official Media Partner

The Environmental Services Association (ESA) works on behalf of our Members to support and promote the Waste & Resource Management industry. We work with governments, parliaments and regulators to bring about a sustainable system of waste and resource management for the UK. Our industry provides services which are essential to modern life. The companies that make up the sector collect the waste produced by households and businesses across the UK, treat it responsibly, and turn a large percentage of that waste into new resources and energy for the nation. In recent years the industry has transformed itself. Ten years ago, over three-quarters of Britain's waste went to landfill (compared to well under 50% today) and waste management was chiefly focused on the logistics of collection and transport. While these still matter, the industry has developed a range of technologies to treat waste and extract value from it. Innovation & investment is a constant feature of modern waste management. The ESA is also at the forefront of debates about waste prevention and recycling, playing a vital role in driving higher standards within our industry.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
