Ecosurety’s commercial manager, Robbie Staniforth, will be speaking at a forthcoming event on what future might be in store for the UK environment after Brexit.

Robbie StaniforthThe Environmental Data Services (ENDS) event at Bournemouth University on 11 April will bring together professionals from across many different sectors. The diverse group from academia, local authorities, central government, legal services, campaign groups and professional services will scenario forecast in the hope of ensuring environmental concerns are on the political agenda.

Proceeding the event in a candid interview with ENDS, Robbie discussed the risks, opportunities and what a bright future might look like. When asked about his major concerns, it was clear he thought the EU had been providing the vision for environmental improvement. He said, “… the UK has looked to the EU to provide a framework... The driving force has all too often been the Government's concern of being fined, or prosecuted by the EU”.

However, it was clear that he didn’t think the EU had got legislation right in every instance, “There are EU tools that have a poor reputation... This is an opportunity to replace them with something much better.”

Warning that companies should not consider this period in history as being in limbo, he continued “Rules and guidelines are very useful, but break-out innovations happen because somebody doesn’t accept the road map.” While he accepted that businesses hate uncertainty, he concluded that it will take a proactive approach from government to get future legislation right.
