Waste Management​
​The waste sector accounts for 2,8 % of GHG emissions and waste generation increases by 9% every year.
 

THE CURRENT SITUATION

Waste and landfill areas are a serious problem for the environment, current waste practices are no longer sustainable. Waste leads to the pollution of ground water, soil, and air and causes the harmful release of greenhouse gases. In fact, post-consumer waste contributes to around 2.8% of total global GHG emissions.

Worldwide there is a growing concern about the unprecedented scale and speed of environmental pollution and degradation, and the depletion of natural resources. Consequently the cost of waste treatment is substantial (global average €50 a ton, in EU €80 a ton) and stricter legislation is constantly been introduced to encourage more sustainable solutions.

Adequate waste treatment practices have a significant role to play when solving these issues, and waste is a sector where important cost and emission reductions can easily be achieved.
