Trade effluent and discharging waste water can be a costly necessity for organisations, but correctly managing and monitoring your industrial waste water can save money and minimise your impact on the environment.
It was just a few weeks ago that SOCOTEC, formerly ESG, hosted another Railway Environmental Forum in both Glasgow and London.
Nicola Atkinson, rail account manager, Environment & Safety Services, discusses this year’s success, the fantastic venues and why such an event is important to the rail industry.
Don’t just take our word for it... Andy Cordwell from GTR, Mark Quirke from GWR and Steve Rooke from SWR, have also kindly given their feedback about the Forum.
Our annual event, the Railway Environmental Forum, is around the corner once again with only one week to go until our experts present on a range of environmental, safety and compliance topics at Glasgow. Just a week later, our second event will be held in London.
With the focus of Monitoring Environmental Inputs and Outputs at rail depots and work sites, Nicola Atkinson, SOCOTEC’s rail account manager, explains what’s involved in the day and what will be learnt when attending.
