Ecofolio | A map of exemplary local authorities

 

Ecofolio

 

Ecofolio, ACR+ member, has published its map of exemplary local authorities (Carte des collectivités exemplaires), an innovative tool aiming to help local authorities in better managing their environmental and economic performances.

On 1 June 2016, during the “Salon des Maires et des Collectivités Locales” the paper eco-organisation Ecofolio, the Eco Maires, the Association des Régions de France and the Assemblée des Communautés de France have unveiled their map of exemplary local authorities. This new interactive website (only available in French), based on a map of France, aims to encourage the exchange of information between local authorities in order to improve their paper recycling performance while dealing with managing costs. The website www.lescollectivitesexemplaires.fr already gathers more than 50 pre-registered local authorities willing to share their best practices in paper collection and sorting.

Amongst its other work on improved paper collection and recycling, Ecofolio is also a partner in the new H2020 project IMPACTPapeRec, in which ACR+ is also a partner. This project aims to further increase the separate collection of paper for recycling and promote appropriate schemes to avoid landfilling and incineration.
