In November 2021, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) will bring together heads of states, climate experts, businesses and campaigners to agree on united action to tackle the climate challenge.

Ahead of next year’s conference in Glasgow, the Council for Sustainable Business hosted the virtual COP26 Business Leaders Event, where CEOs made commitments to nature and climate change in the presence of the BEIS Secretary of State Alok Sharma and Environment Secretary George Eustice.

There were CEOs and Chairs of over 190 businesses, including 50% of the FTSE 100 companies, collectively employing 5 million people and a combined market capitalization of £1.3 trillion. Over 50 of those businesses had already committed to Net Zero 2040 or better.

As a member of the Council for Sustainable Business, Chris Sheppard Group CEO of EMR committed to net zero emissions across the entire value chain by 2040. Here, Chris explains why it’s so important for businesses to lead by example in the fight against climate change.

EMR COVID-19 statement End of Life Vehicles – 25.03.20 - 09/04/20

The Metal Recycling sector plays an important role in supporting the UK’s waste sector, which has been deemed essential by the UK government. Therefore, as a market leader it is vital that EMR’s infrastructure remains operational as far as possible and plays its part in supporting that important supply chain at this critical time. If we do not keep moving scrap metal, then there could be a build up of materials and this could pose a health and safety risk.

As we continue to closely monitor the developments in relation to COVID-19, our top priority is the health of our employees, customers and suppliers. We must also ensure that our critical waste infrastructure remains available for the nation. We have therefore decided to take further steps to avoid the transmission of infection to our staff and suppliers.

We made temporary changes to the way we operate with effect from 6pm yesterday, 24th March 2020.

To protect our employees and the wider community, we will no longer be able to accept scrap vehicles that require any form of depollution, inspection or the issue of a Certificate of Destruction from any source. This includes both the general public and business accounts.

However, we will still accept depolluted car shells from business accounts (VAT registered), provided they can be delivered and offloaded in the same way as the new procedures that we have put in place for other bulk loads.
