Chairman’s Report and Roadmap
The Chairman of the Task Force has published his report and draft roadmap, Towards Sustainable Growing Media, available below.
This report sets out the Chairman’s thoughts on the work of the Task Force to date and the challenges ahead as well as presenting a draft roadmap that shows how his proposals can be taken forward into actions.
Unlike the Interim Report, this report does not provide a project by project update of progress. Instead the focus is on highlighting observations that have arisen across the piece.
Part 1 of the report is a personal take by the Chairman on the current state of the debate and the challenges ahead.
Part 2 focuses on setting out emerging messages and observations building on the work of the Task Force focussed around a series of consensus points, although it highlights both areas of agreement and areas where it has not been possible to come to a consensus on the detail.
Finally, Part 3 sets out a draft roadmap building on an exercise undertaken by the Task Force at its meeting on 11 May.
Invitation to provide feedback by 30 September 2012
The Chairman is inviting feedback from all interested parties, whether Task Force members or not, by the end of September. He would like your views on any part or all of the report and would particularly welcome details of specific actions that individuals or organisations would be willing to undertake that can be added to the roadmap. There are no specific questions to be answered and this is not a Government consultation.
Feedback should be sent to the Secretariat by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Task Force has continued to make significant progress since the publication of its Interim Report in March and there is a great deal of consensus amongst Task Force members in many areas. Naturally, there remain some areas where consensus was harder to find. This report is the chairman’s summary of what he believes is a sensible, commercial and practical way forward and does not represent Government policy.
