ISWA: Working for a better World
ISWA’s vision is an Earth where no waste exists. Waste should be reused and reduced to a minimum, then collected, recycled and treated properly. Residual matter should be disposed of in a safely engineered way, ensuring a clean and healthy environment. All people on earth should have the right to enjoy an environment with clean air, water, seas and soils. To be able to achieve this, we need to work together.
The relations between the different bodies of ISWA and their establishment, competences and responsibilities are laid down in the Statutes and the Internal Regulations of the association. Changes to the Statutes and Internal Regulations require approval by the General Assembly, two third majority and simple majority respectively.
