The chair/moderator is Jonathan Leake, former environment editor of the Sunday Times.
Georgia Elliot Smith, Jacob Hayler and Professor Maurer from the EU Commission will be participating.

Jacob Hayler is the Exec Director of the Environmental Services Association. On Energy-from-waste (Incineration) he has said that it has a greater role to play in pursuit of a net-zero carbon economy by maximising the efficiency of plants, reducing carbon outputs, and by helping other sectors to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
Professor Maurer, joined the European Commission in 2002 as a principal lawyer. He is now a Senior Expert and responsible in DG Environment for questions around circular economy and chemicals.
