Zero Waste Scotland Business Plan
The current Zero Waste Scotland Business Plan recognises that there is a need to increase the capacity of the workforce to bring about the necessary change in the management of waste to contribute to the development of a zero waste society in Scotland.
If you are a representative with an up-to-date and detailed knowledge of the Waste and Recycling industries, you are invited to contribute on behalf of your organisation to a consultation on the skills and training needs that have been recently identified.
The research has been funded by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), on behalf of Zero Waste Scotland and delivered by Energy & Utility Skills (EU Skills) between November 2011 and February 2012. A number of employer interviews were set up to identify the anticipated gaps in skills, training and competence expected in the next decade.
To ensure that EU Skills maximise the value from your time and make best use of the information that you provide, they would ask that you consider the following questions to help us identify the most suitable recommendations:
1. Are there any role changes/skills gaps expected in the next 10 years that have not been considered in the attached document?
2. Are there any additional training or provision needs that have not been included in the attached document?
3. How do you think Zero Waste Scotland could help to address these gaps/ needs?
4. Who should Zero Waste Scotland work with to address gaps in skills and provision?
Both EU Skills and WRAP invite comments from members who have experience in this area and have studied the attached document. All inputs to this consultation will be treated confidentially when putting the final report together and individual contributors will not be named.
The deadline for a response to this consultation is 5pm on Monday 12 March 2012. Please use the following link to capture your responses: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WRAPConsultation2012

Scotlands Environmental Web
There is a new site online bringing together information on Scotland's environment in one place.
There is nowhere else that environmental data and reports from known and trusted sources can be accessed and looked at in combination.
The site provides straight-forward descriptions of the state of Scotland's environment and key messages that highlight our progress in protecting it.
