Upcoming IAEA 90th Anniversary Event

The Institute of Automotive Engineer Assessors (IAEA) reached its 90th year in 2022. Sadly, the death and funeral of Queen Elizabeth II meant that the Anniversary Event planned for September had to be postponed. The Event will now take place at the Stratford Manor Hotel on Saturday 20th May 2023.

Owain joined Volvo Cars in June 2021 to lead Circular Economy in the Global Sustainability Team. The company has committed to being a circular business by 2040 and has financial, recycled content and CO2 based targets for 2025, all of which Owain is working across the company to make happen. Owain previously worked for circular economy consultancy Oakdene Hollins where he advised businesses on evidence led circular economy implementation. 

Turning into a circular business and the importance of vehicle reuse and recycling.
