Quantitative Benchmarks for Municipal Waste Prevention

New publication

A Guide for Local and Regional Authorities in support of the new Framework Directive

One of the big challenges with waste prevention involves trying to set quantitative targets and to quantify the results of waste prevention efforts. To help fill these gaps, ACR+ has published a guide on quantitative benchmarks for waste prevention. The guide consists of a thorough review of the waste prevention prescriptions contained in the new Waste Framework Directive, an in-depth research on the principles and applications of benchmarking and, finally, a systematic effort to capture, in a European context, 95 quantitative waste prevention examples that, through voluntary actions, exemplify the potential waste reductions achievable at regional and local level.
