Nature Group (AIM:NGR)  the provider  of port reception  facilities and  waste

Bernard Muller has been on the Board on Nature Group since the acquisition  of

executive chairman of  the Group since  September 2011. Nigel  Sandy, who  has 
been on the Board since February 2007 and the deputy chairman since  September 
2011, will take on the role  of non-executive chairman with immediate  effect. 
Nigel has  extensive experience  having  held senior  roles within  the  waste 
management industry since 1990.

Commenting, Andreas Drenthen, Chief Executive of Nature Group said:

"Bernard has been instrumental in bringing  together ISD and Nature Group  and 
in ensuring that as a  group we operate to  the highest possible standards  of 
compliance within our industry. I look forward to continuing to develop Nature
Group, in association with  Nigel, as a leader  in environmental solutions  to 
the maritime and oil & gas industry."

Nigel Sandy added:

"On behalf of the board I would like  to thank Bernard for all he has done  to 
integrate ISD into Nature Group and for the vital role he played in developing
our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)  standards. Bernard has made a  very 
positive contribution to the Group and I am sorry to see him leave and we  all 
wish him the very best for the future"

The Board believes the Company has a strong management team to take  advantage 
of its  current range  of opportunities.  It is  negotiating a  number of  new 
business contracts and will issue a trading update prior to the year end.
