Swiss businesses are being encouraged to invest in the UK recycling and resource sector with the assistance of consultancy LRS.
LRS has become a Certified Expert for Switzerland Global Enterprise and has been working with the Swiss Business Hub to encourage export and investment into the UK. It has produced a high-level market review for the Swiss market and presented at a waste management event in Zurich.
UK Trade & Investment chief executive Nick Baird said: “LRS Consultancy is setting a fine example in taking a proactive approach to developing new international business opportunities for Swiss companies to expand into the UK.
“The UK’s waste and resource management industry is an exciting one to invest in, as it evolves to meet EU legislation, while looking at how resource can be better used and kept in the UK to be reused in new products, as part of a circular economy.”
The UK waste sector report, produced by LRS, analyses information to help Swiss businesses determine whether to enter the UK market. It includes assessment of opportunities in the UK market around resource efficiency, waste management services and associated technologies, including the recovery of value from materials and energy.
LRS Consultancy managing director Dee Moloney said: “Our review is intended to provide useful information and intelligence to enable Swiss companies to exploit opportunities in the UK market to the best of their abilities.
“Presenting and working in Zurich really helped delegates to get a good understanding of the UK marketplace, where the UK is at with legislation and how the industry is evolving towards a circular economy.”
