The three ACR+ members Pays de la Loire region, Brussels and Genova are the first pilot territories of the More Circularity Less Carbon campaign. They are now finishing to collect data on their local waste generation and management for about 30 categories. This will help them to identify key sectors and materials with high carbon reduction potential and draw effective action plans. Although this phase experienced some delay due to the COVID-19, it is soon completed. The data collected will then be analysed using the Carbon Metric International, developed by ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland. The first results are expected to be published after September 2020.

Following this, a second cohort composed by three new territories will be launched. It will benefit from the lessons learnt from the pilot cohort. Indeed, the work carried out by the first territories highlighted several challenges such as a lack of data on the composition of mixed fractions or on the outcomes of the different fractions. It has been also challenging to collect relevant data on local or regional consumption patterns.
