Proposals for targets and indicators for waste prevention in four waste streams

This project, commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers, had the objective of providing first proposals for targets and indicators that can be used in the Nordic countries’ waste prevention programmes. Four waste streams were considered: food waste, construction- and demolition waste (C&D waste), waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and textile waste. The project took the following two-step approach. Firstly, a literature review of international experiences was conducted regarding waste prevention policy, waste definitions, target setting and use of indicators for the respective four waste streams. Secondly, based on the findings from the literature as well as experiences of the project team, proposals for targets and indicators were developed.
