Developing binding recycling and environmental standards;
supporting and strengthening political commitment and increasing financial support for the private recycling sector
We want to make lasting improvements to the underlying conditions that enable circular economies and by doing so ensure that effective recycling and waste management systems can be established and that these are both economically viable and successful in the long term.
We encourage political backing and support for businesses in the waste and recycling industry and promote the integration of the informal sector.
We promote the training of specialists and leaders in developing and emerging economies on the basis of standards and best practices.
The working group supports the municipal waste management sector at organisational level, helping it secure long-term financing and integrate the private and informal sectors. It develops standards for data collection that help with the planning, implementation and monitoring of initiatives.
For a circular economy to succeed, the right legal and organisational framework must be in place. This ensures that initiatives, goals and standards are available to ensure the system is correctly implemented.
The alliance will help a partner country (still be chosen) improve legal regulations and provide support with their implementation.
