Estudio “Impulses for a Sustainable Waste Management. Strategy Paper Baltic States”

Posted by aclimaadmin | junio 3, 2022 | Noticias del Sector

With the European Green Deal, the EU Commission provides an action plan to boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean and circular economy, restoring biodiversity, and cutting
pollution. While the Baltic States, together with Romania, emit the fewest greenhouse gases in the EU, there is still plenty of room for improvement in other fields. These include the recycling rate of municipal waste, with values of 30.8% (Estonia), 41% (Latvia) and 49.7% (Lithuania) compared to Germany with 66.7% (Eurostat, 2019). In Latvia, a deposit system for beverage bottles was introduced only recently. The European Commission is willing to turn the “idea” into reality and a number of further legislative initiatives will be taken. My impression is that many companies are not yet aware of what they will have to face in the near future.

As the German-Baltic Chamber of Commerce in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania we would like to contribute our part to make people and companies aware of the importance of a clean and circular economy. The project “Export Initiative Environmental Technologies”, which is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), offers the opportunity to analyze the circular economy in the Baltic States, to discuss the problems together with experts from the Baltic States and Germany and to build bridges between the companies. The German companies provide their know-how and technologies, which have proven their quality in Germany and abroad over the past decades.

The Environmental Technologies Export Initiative will thus make an important contribution to further improve the situation in the Baltic States!
