This report presents the outcomes of the National Environmental Services Survey, a comprehensive examination of the nation's most pressing environmental concerns. The survey's results will be a focal point at the Environmental Services & Solutions Expo, the UK's largest gathering of environmental professionals, taking place on September 13-14 at the NEC, Birmingham.

Through extensive collaboration with experts and stakeholders nationwide, we have collected valuable data, insights, and unique perspectives. Our aim was to gain a deep understanding of environmental challenges and drive effective solutions.

The findings provide an overview of our environment, highlighting the issues and opportunities at hand. We invite widespread engagement, as these results will spark discussions and collaborative action. Join us at ESS to connect with like-minded individuals, share best practices, and shape the future of environmental services. Together, we can make significant strides toward a greener, sustainable future.
