European Week for Waste Reduction – 16th to 24th November

15th November 2019

This year, European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) runs from 16th to 24th  November.  The purpose of this annual initiative is to raise awareness of sustainable resource and waste management, with the aim of encouraging a wide range of audiences to participate.

Thematic focus of EWWR

This year’s focus is “Waste education and communication”. Under the slogan “Change your ways, reduce your waste”, EWWR is challenging participants to educate themselves and others about their consumption and waste generation and to make valuable changes to their habits to mitigate their own environmental impact. 

The key consideration at the heart of EWWR each year is to encourage the development of waste management strategies and behavioural change within authorities, businesses and other stakeholders.  EWWR provides a number of case studies and factsheets which showcase effective waste management and waste reduction.  For further information, please visit the website.

How the S2 Partnership can help

If you’re looking for an easy way to track and reduce waste, the RiskWise Environmental Management module assists organisations in identifying, managing and reducing environmental impacts including energy and water consumption and waste management. The module records and reports on all the individual waste streams across your properties, enabling you to instantly identify changes in waste levels and trends to focus effective waste reduction efforts.
