Mary shares Eunomia’s values, and is personnally committed to reducing her impact on the environment.
Joe’s experience spans waste operations, waste flow modelling, service profiling, policy development and implementation, contract negotiation and public procurement. Most recently he has specialised in partnership working and efficiency initiatives with local authorities, facilitating collaborative working and driving essential cost efficiencies whilst also increasing recycling performance. His ability to understand the multiple interlinked relationships between legal requirements, targets, budgets and contracts, coupled with a creative, analytical mind have made Joe a vital element in developing the waste management strategies of over 100 UK authorities.
Joe leads Eunomia’s work on public procurement, having directed the commissioning of municipal recycling contracts worth in excess of £1.2 billion. Joe was instrumental in the formation of an award winning framework for the procurement of residual waste services in Wales, which is now live and saving Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion County Councils hundreds of thousands of pounds each year.
He also directs many of Eunomia’s efficiency reviews and service design projects for local authorities and their contractors, covering the full range of environmental services and using his operational knowledge and negotiation skills to bring about better performing, more efficient services.
In addition to the dozens of local authority projects directed by Joe, his skills are increasingly sought after by private sector clients, providing specialist bid advice and change management support to multi-million pound waste contracts.
From the grassroots up, Joe has gained his expertise ‘on the job’. His career in recycling started in 1995 when he set up a kerbside collection scheme in Brighton, and the ensuing years saw Joe lead a number of community recycling organisations, including management of the Community Recycling Network – a national support organisation for community recycling schemes.
In the early 2000’s Joe became an independent consultant, providing specialist waste management advice to the UK Government and a number of local authorities. Joe has authored a number of publications on waste management, and held expert appointments with Government which continue to the present day.
Mike, who leads on Eunomia’s commercial portfolio, has recently directed commercial due diligence work for various confidential private sector clients seeking a competitive advantage in the waste and energy sectors. As well as advising on technical and market condition disciplines, he also leads on contractual negotiations and execution often acting as lead interface between client and legal teams.
Recent work includes bringing together multiple commercial stakeholders into the UK RDF Export Group for which Eunomia acts as Secretariat. He has also facilitated a multi-national joint venture partnership on Carbon Capture and Storage and directed the planning application of a 1,852MW clean-coal power station, as well as creating a partnership between a developer and waste operator resulting in the investment in up to 6 EfW sites and facilities.
Mike also recently developed the business cases for a number of Local Authorities seeking new waste facilities, taking one project through investment decision to site acquisition and consenting. For a private sector waste collector, Mike has been lead commercial negotiator on delivering land and site acquisition, and third party service level agreements.
Mike was lead advisor to Defra’s £30m New Technologies Demonstrator Programme from inception in 2003 to close down in 2010, and was the founder Chairman of the then DTI and devolved administrations endorsed National Resource and Waste Forum.
Mike, a Master of Hydrogeology, started his career in 1987 as a geologist at Tarmac’s then head office in Ettingshall. In 1991 he moved from mineral extraction to landfill with the privately owned Terry Adams Ltd, where in 1997 he was part of the development team that acquired the closed open-coast coal portfolio from the Coal Authority and then prepared the company for sale to Viridor.
For the next decade, Mike worked at CES Limited, becoming Managing Director of the Cornwall County Council owned £20m turnover waste company culminating in the sale of CES to SITA in 2006. For the past 8 years, Mike has been a Director of Eunomia Research & Consulting Ltd, where he now leads the executive team as MD. Mike’s near 30 years experience in the sector is principally as an operator from which he derives his commercial expertise.
