The Resources and Waste Targets Expert Group provides independent technical advice to inform the development of legally binding resource efficiency and waste reduction targets for England.

The Environment Bill requires government to set at least one long-term target in the priority area of resource efficiency and waste reduction. The Resources and Waste Targets Expert Group is a task-and-finish panel formed to provide Defra with independent evidence advice linked to long-term targets in the area of Resource Efficiency and Waste Reduction.
