The Management received a report from the Director which provided information on the use of Plastics in ESPO’s supply chain. A copy of the report, marked ‘Agenda Item 9’, is filed with these minutes.
A supplementary paper outlining the current position regarding the update of Leicestershire County Council Environment Strategy was tabled at the meeting and a copy is filed with the minutes.
There were a range of options ESPO could pursue to respond to the environmental concerns surrounding the use of plastics. The aim was to embed as many of the actions listed in paragraph 48 as was feasible, which Members agreed was both morally necessary and good business sense.
That the Committee note the report and that an update on progress be made to the Committee in twelve months time.
