ACR v2 r02Genoa, Pays de la Loire and Brussels analysed their waste carbon impacts in the framework of the More Circularity, Less Carbon campaign led by ACR+ with the support of ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland and its Carbon Metric International. The goal of this ambitious campaign is to investigate how reducing the carbon footprint of municipal waste by 25% could be achieved by 2025. After publishing individual assessments, ACR+ is sharing a cross analysis of the results of this first cohort.  
Due to local specificities and a different scope of municipal waste data, the three territories present some discrepancies not only for waste generation and composition but also in the organisation of waste treatment which leads to different carbon footprints. Nonetheless, the carbon footprints still present similar trends. Genoa, Pays de la Loire and Brussels all boast a positive or neutral impact thanks to their efforts regarding end-of-life and recycling. The study shows that the most carbon-intensive fractions are also similar for the three territories: textile, food, and plastic.
