The environmental body CIWM (EB) has announced a change of name to CIWM Research and Project Management (RPM) to better reflects its remit, activities and objectives. “With the demise of funding for waste-related research under the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme and the replacement Landfill Communities Fund, it was only natural for the organisation to move on,” explains its chairman Oswald A Dodds MBE.
“We would be happy to hear from public or private organisations in the wastes and resources sector requiring the dedication of skilled professionals to the efficient management of research and development projects or external consultancies.”
CIWM (RPM) will continue to be a registered charity and company limited by guarantee, operating at arms-length from CIWM. Its objectives include “research, development, education and the collection and dissemination of information about waste management generally for the purposes of encouraging the use of more sustainable waste management practices”.
Established in 2000 to manage project specific funds from the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme (LTCS), CIWM successfully delivered a number of ground-breaking research studies and several major initiatives to improve and advance data management within the sector, as well as playing an active part in the development of the latest environmental legislation.
