Principles of a Zero Waste strategy in Europe

New brochure highlights the essence of a zero waste society

Zero Waste is more a path than a destination and what matters most is the commitment to continuously reduce the residual waste to zero; i.e. phase out disposal options of landfilling and incineration, whilst continuing to improve sustainability, economic resilience and social cohesion.

Every community has its own characteristics and will need to adapt the philosophy to the local conditions, there is no one-size fits all Zero Waste system.

Zero Waste Europe has summarised the main principles and components of a Zero Waste strategy for the European context in a brochure.

You can find the brochure here.
