Zero Waste Scotland, the resource-efficiency body responsible for leading the delivery of the Scottish Government’s Zero Waste Plan, has announced the appointment of Vic Emery OBE as chairman.

An  industrialist and businessman, Mr Emery is the first chairperson of the organisation since its  transition to a new corporate structure from 1st July 2014.

Now a Scottish-registered company, Zero Waste Scotland seeks to maximise the efficient use of some of Scotland’s most valuable resources – materials, energy and water – to achieve economic and environmental benefit.

Mr Emery, a former managing director of BAE Systems’ Warship Division and chair of Scottish Enterprise Glasgow, commented: ‘ Zero Waste Scotland is an organisation with a hugely important mission. I’m excited about the future, not least in working with an energetic staff team with some terrific achievements already under their belts.

‘I will work with them to drive progress in Scotland on key issues such as resource efficiency, recycling, litter and the circular economy.’

Iain Gulland, Director, Zero Waste Scotland, added: ‘I am very pleased to welcome Vic as Zero Waste Scotland’s first chair, and I know that he will provide proven leadership skills, experience and expertise to take Zero Waste Scotland forward in the years to come.

‘As an organisation we have a broader remit than ever before, ranging from recycling to energy-efficiency and litter prevention, and having Vic on board will help us to build strong partnerships across the public and private sectors to help us meet our ambitious objectives.’
