The Peterlee and Seaham business park groups are delighted to announce another addition to their portfolio of sector experts.

Sharon Lashley, who runs Enviro UK Consultants Ltd, has signed up to a six-month programme of advice blogs, which will see her share her expertise to the business communities.

Sharon is an environmental, sustainability, energy and waste management expert, who helps businesses improve their green credentials.  Sharon is also a registered trainer and training centre for the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) licensed to deliver the Waste Smart training courses.

Sharon said: “I am delighted to sign up as the Peterlee and Seaham business park groups’ latest sector expert.

“Waste management has never been so topical, particularly with all of the publicity around single use plastic waste and where it ends up. Businesses are legally bound to ensure they dispose of their waste responsibly and our Waste Smart training ensures they are able to properly manage their waste, make cost savings and remain compliant with the legislation.

Our training courses educate without preaching and show businesses how small changes can make such a difference to their costs and the environment”

“My blogs will look at topical issues with useful content and advice which I hope will really benefit the business community. After all, the environment is ours and we all have a responsibility to protect it for future generations.”

As well as consultancy and project management, Enviro UK Consultants Ltd has seen a significant increase in demand for the CIWM Waste management training courses which are offered to all businesses producing waste as part of their activities.

Novus Business Centre-based Shred Direct, whose owner Graeme Carter has undertaken one of Sharon’s courses to ensure he is trained to the required industry standard said “Sharon provides first class training which is beneficial to both experienced waste practitioners and those that are new to the industry. There are many potential pitfalls in waste legislation and Sharon helps to guide you safely through them and I can’t recommend her course highly enough”

Enviro UK Consultants Ltd is split between offices at the North East BIC in Sunderland and Sharon’s home office in East Durham.

Since launching Sharon has worked with manufacturers, local authorities, community groups, the emergency services and charities and recently helped the North East BIC with the installation of their PV tracker and solar panels.
