The Waste & Resources Action Programme has appointed a new chief executive, Liz Goodwin.

She joined the company in 2001 as director of materials, heading up a number of core WRAP programmes focused on overcoming market barriers and boosting the UK's reprocessing capacity. Dr Goodwin became director of construction & manufacturing in 2006 and has been acting as interim CEO since the departure of Jennie Price last month.

WRAP works in partnership with local authorities to encourage and enable businesses and consumers to be more efficient in their use of materials and to recycle more.

WRAP chairman Vic Cocker said:

'The issues of recycling and resource efficiency, and the contribution that WRAP and its partners can make to tackling climate change, are more important than ever. I know that Liz has the skills and commitment to make a substantial impact on this crucial part of the UK's environmental agenda.'

Dr Goodwin said:

'Environmental issues have never before been so high on the agenda and we need to capitalise on this awareness and interest and convert it into action that has a significant impact.

'I am keen to work with our partners in all sectors to ensure that the role of recycling and materials resource efficiency is well understood so that we can continue to make real progress.'
