d

The platform's strategic collaborator the Danish Ministry of the Environment just launched a new strategy and government initiative on “Denmark without waste” which focuses on partnerships as one of its main tools to achieve desired development goals. The Strategy will make it easier and more attractive to avoid waste and to throw away less. This will give a boost to the environment and corporate competitiveness, and it will put more money in Danish pockets.

Denmark is one of the highest per capita users of resources in the world, and it is one of the largest producers of waste. Danes throw away food that could have been eaten, composite packaging, which is hard to recycle, electronic equipment, which still works, and clothes, which are not worn out. This is a waste of resources and bad for Danes’ personal and corporate finances.

Therefore the Danish Minister for the Environment, Kirsten Brosbøl, is launching the Government strategy to prevent waste; Denmark without Waste II. With 72 initiatives, the Strategy will encourage Danish enterprises and consumers to avoid and reduce waste.
