Sustainable development - a chance for communes

The world is getting more social and sustainable. With 17 goals for sustainable development United Nations set the globally applicable framework for national and international efforts to find shared solutions to the world's greatest challenges.
Switzerland engages with its “Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development”.

However most countries have an agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), im-plementation is not only a national topic but also a subject for communes. Especially SDG11 demands communes to act.

Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG 11)
„Goal 11 aims to reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, particularly in terms of air quality and waste management. It calls for more inclusive and sustainable forms of urbanization, based in particular on a participatory, integrated and sustainable approach to ur-ban planning.“

It also concerns explicit the waste management, 11.6:
„By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management.“

“wasteloop” – active support for SDG 11
To keep high air quality in urban areas, there is no getting around electric mobility, neither in waste management. Particularly this sector offers a big potential reducing emissions and energy consumption. “wasteloop” as forward-looking waste management concept with its local compaction, offers even more benefits for citizens. Reduced space requirement for collection points offer more space for the public life in communes and full compactors are quietly exchanged instead of emptied on site.

Take your chance to profile your commune and offer a more sustainable waste management with additional values.
