Britsh Glas has created a new position in its organization: that of head of container affairs. Rebecca Cocking, who was previously recycling manager, will take on this role, focusing on legislation, publicity and lobbying activities in support of the use and recycling of glass.
British Glass aims to step up lobbying on recycling and packaging issues, and has promoted Rebecca Cocking to the new role of head of container affairs.
Cocking was previously recycling manager at the organization, a position she has held for six years. She came to British Glass in 2000 and has played a key role in developing industry policy in relation to EU and UK recycling and waste legislation.
The new position will focus on legislation, publicity and lobbying activities to support the use and recycling of glass.
Cocking will be in charge of communications and liaisons with other trade bodies such as FEVE, Packflow, the Packaging Federation, as well as the provision of advice, data and information to the UK glass sector. She will be supported in the role by data analysis officer Lucinda Heneghan.
British Glass chief executive Dave Dalton said: “Rebecca is a well respected figure in the industry and has considerable experience and knowledge of the glass sector. I look forward to her expanding her influence in this new role.”
