At the closing ceremony of the 2021 ISWA World Congress, Carlos Silva Filho announced the release of ISWA’s latest report titled “The Future of The Waste Management Sector: Trends, Opportunities and Challenges for the Decade”. The report represents the contributions of stakeholders from across the waste management industry, and was presented by the Chair of the Scientific and Technical Committee, Björn Appelqvist, during the congress.
ISWA’s ten-year outlook highlights the key issues around the transition to a circular economy, the role waste management will play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and combatting climate change. The report is a call to action on how to move forward into the new decade and is a must-read for all industry stakeholders as well as others involved in any of these topics; sustainable waste management will undoubtedly play a fundamental role in achieving a cleaner, healthier planet for everyone.
ISWA would like to extend a special thank you to the sponsors and supporters of this important work. Their generous contributions enable us to in turn support the whole waste management industry as we strive towards promoting sustainable waste management around the world and the transition to a circular economy.
