All four UK nations should create a combined post-Brexit policy

Written by: Jo Gallacher | Published:

All four UK nations should agree to a planned strategy after Brexit, according to John Quinn, CEO of Northern Irish waste management group Arc 21.

Speaking as part of RWM’s ‘4 Nations Debate- UK Resource Landscapes and Roadmaps’ Quinn admitted that Northern Ireland was lagging behind Scotland and Wales when it comes to moving towards a circular economy.

He argued the four nations should communicate more with one another rather than set separate targets.

He said: “Environmental and agricultural policies transcend political boundaries, we need to look at this as the common UK market and we need a common policy across us to reach a circular economy.

“It’s not just about targets, the argument now is creating a system which adds value and looks after its staff and jobs.”

Arc 21 manages the waste strategy for six councils across Northern Ireland.
