Early in December, five RSK family businesses met to network and collaborate with colleagues, to look for synergies and opportunities, and to share knowledge and expertise.

The first day of our shared pod event saw nearly 90 people gathering to share ideas, to learn from each other, and to find out what we can do to build on our individual successes and take them even further. Highlights included a practical demonstration of spill response equipment, a lively discussion around best practice for containing and recovering hydrocarbons from running watercourses, and a technical review of recent legislative developments.

Day two saw the presentation of modules on the practicalities of spill response, the fundamentals of intrusive site investigation, and the technicalities of remediation techniques. RSK Response, Ecologia, RSK Raw, RSK IWS, Ecologia Italy and RemedX then shared a fascinating range of case studies, highlighting the strengths of each business and the endless possibilities for collaboration, learning and innovation when we work together.

This was such a valuable and enjoyable opportunity for us all, a real highlight of the last year and setting us all up for a great start to 2024!
