RWM Ambassador programme

The RWM Ambassadors are a group of leading waste and resource industry figures from business, the public sector and academia, acting as a force for policy and business change supported in their work by the Resource and Waste Management Exhibition.


Chaired by Barry Dennis, former Director General of the Environmental Services Association and past President of CIWM and now Chairman of RWM, the group is made up of leading figures from key resource stakeholder organisations, spanning manufacturing, retail, waste management, public sector, education and trade.

Not confined to represent one view, the group is an informed platform for discussion in transforming how the UK addresses waste and resource.
