This report commissioned to Eunomia by ACR+ and EEB focuses on an economic tool which can improve waste management, in line with the European waste treatment hierarchy, and encourage the move to a circular economy model – waste performance contracts.

The report proposes the following definition for performance contracting: ‘a contract for the management of waste which, through the action of a contractually agreed payment mechanism related to defined performance indicators and targets, incentivises the movement of waste management further up the waste hierarchy, and enhances the prospects for improved resource efficiency and the flourishing of a circular economy.
