Waste Prevention – November 2009

The European Week for Waste Prevention aims to:

• Promote sustainable waste reduction actions across Europe
  • Highlight the work carried out by several stakeholders, through concrete examples of waste reduction
  • Encourage a change in the behaviour of Europeans (consumption, production) on a daily basis.
  • Publicize waste reduction strategies and the policy of the European Union and its member states in this area. The European Week for the Prevention of Waste is a European initiative, with the participation of 10 countries and, in Portugal, it is led by the Portuguese Environment Agency and LIPOR, and is supported by the European Commission’s LIFE + Program.
