Environment Committee

Guiding policy and developing solutions for the environment

The Environment Committee is a standing committee of the association. 

Meeting six times a year, the committee reviews the industry’s environmental strategies, determine priorities, consider proposed changes to legislation, recommends actions to the Executive Committee, develop tools to assist members with environmental issues at their workplace and to forge relationships and partnerships beneficial to the industry.

Committee members are representatives from member businesses who have an interest in environment-related matters, and work to provide solutions to industry issues and determine key industry policy on such matters.

Any member is able to put forward agenda items for committee discussion or to nominate their services to the committee. A call for expressions of interest in membership of the committee is undertaken from time to time or members can simply volunteer. Contact us for further information.

Terms of reference and minutes of past committee meetings can be accessed here. These minutes are confidential to SAWIA members.
