The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) was established in September 2009 in order to represent the anaerobic digestion (AD) and bioresources industry. ADBA was set up by Lord Rupert Redesdale (former Liberal Democrat Energy Spokesperson) and ten founder members to help to remove the barriers faced by the whole industry and to support its members in growing their organisations in order to reach the full potential of this diverse industry. To read more about ADBA’s founder members, please click here.
On 1 October 2014, ADBA widened its remit to include emerging technologies and products from the bioeconomy. To reflect this, we changed the Association’s name from "The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association" to "The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association".
Through lobbying activities, meetings with government officials, working groups, high profile industry events, educational material and more, ADBA aims to facilitate the industry’s growth, helping the UK meet its renewable energy targets and pave the way for a carbon-free future.

In 2015 in collaboration with PwC we published ‘Igniting change – Building the pipeline of female leaders in energy’. This eye-opening research highlighted that only 5% of executive board seats within the top UK-based energy companies are held by women, whilst 61% have no women on their board.
Our target is 40% of middle management, and 30% of executive board positions, to be female by 2030. We will deliver these in 3 ways:
– Campaigning and Reporting
– Supporting women in their careers
– Sign-posting practical support to increase diversity
The government is working on this and PfW supports several initiatives:
The government is working in this, encouraging more women on boards and in the executive pipeline, in addition to closing the gender pay gap. The department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has committed to having 50% women in senior civil service positions by 2025 and are a key partner of POWERful Women.

The UKRMA is a trade organisation established by the manufacturers of surface-water and grey-water management systems, to promote water re-use as the best and most cost-effective way of helping to reduce future flood and water-shortage risks.
The Association is the only trade organisation in the UK which advocates addressing both risks at the same time, rather than separately, the aim being to ensure that measures taken to alleviate flood-risks, for example, do not heighten water shortages.
Conversely, investment in measures designed primarily to alleviate water shortages, but also help to alleviate flood-risks, need to be encouraged to optimise the UK’s overall management of its rainfall bounty.
