Leading facilities management provider EMCOR UK is proud to announce that it has become the first facilities management and sustainable business provider to be recognised as a Campaign Ambassador for the “Right Waste, Right Place Duty of Care” Campaign. Managed by the Environmental Services Association and sponsored by the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, and Environmental Services Association Education Trust, the Right Waste, Right Place information campaign has been developed to help businesses meet their duty of care obligations as practically as possible.

As an Ambassador, EMCOR UK joins other leading organisations in showing a commitment to promoting best practice with regard to waste management. Further, Campaign Ambassadors must evidence they embrace the principles of Right Waste, Right Place, have an internal programme and policy on waste management, and are committed to actively engage with the Right Waste, Right Place campaign to raise awareness of duty of care requirements amongst customers and its supply chain.

EMCOR UK becoming an ambassador of the Right Waste, Right Place campaign builds on the considerable strides EMCOR UK has made in the management of waste, having been certificated in 2013 with British and International Standards such as ISO 14001 and BS 8903, and in the management of waste throughout 2016.

Keith Chanter, CEO, EMCOR UK, commented: “EMCOR UK is delighted to be joining the “Right Waste, Right Place Duty of Care” campaign as an Ambassador; it is an honour to be the first facilities management and sustainable business provider to be part of this campaign. We already collaborate with our customers and suppliers when it comes to creating effective and efficient workplaces and we are looking to further developing expertise in waste and resource management in 2017.”

Sam Corp, Head of Regulation at the ESA, said: “I am pleased to welcome EMCOR UK as an Ambassador. It’s great to see organisations from a variety of sectors getting involved in the Right Waste, Right Place campaign. This demonstrates that businesses, local authorities, and others recognise how serious an issue duty of care compliance is. I am excited to be continuing our work with our campaign Ambassadors and to many more organisations signing up in the near future.”
