The review covers 129 recommendations

The British Metals Recycling Association has been quoted in the Chris Skidmore MP led Government Net Zero review. The review covers 129 recommendations for how Government can best reap the economic benefits of net zero.

On page 70, in reference to procurement processes the report states that the “British Metals Recycling Association outlined that the UK Government has an opportunity now to put in place strong green procurement policies, especially within national infrastructure projects where the Government could require certain levels of recycled metals to be used.”

On page 72 – in reference to supporting critical net zero technology sectors – we are referenced as saying “the British Metals Recycling Association were confident that the grant application approach would benefit domestic recycling capabilities, advising: The Government should consider the development/implementation of sector-specific grants to support decarbonisation projects thereby creating the first metal recycling industry to be net zero in the world.”

As the Government continues to scope out its journey to achieving net zero, BMRA will continue to monitor events closely, responding to consultations, and feeding into decisions wherever possible.
