The policy group was established in 2023 to help identify and report on environment-related issues that are impacting members’ business operations, as well as those that may do so in the future.

Prior to working at the Woodland Group, Warren served as an environmental and sustainability officer for Chelmsford City Council.

He was elected at the policy group’s meeting earlier in March. BIFA director general, Steve Parker, said: “Sam will be chairing a recently formed group that is designed to help shape best practice guidance; and influence how BIFA’s policy and compliance staff can represent members’ interests on this subject in our interaction with government and other stakeholders that are developing legislation on the matter.”
