European Week for Waste Reduction Awards Ceremony – Waste reduction champions towards zero pollution

Event organised by the European Committee of the Regions, Brussels and ACR+

The European Week for Waste Reduction annual Awards Ceremony will be hosted in June 2021 and will celebrate the most outstanding actions related to waste reduction organised during the EWWR campaign from 21 to 29 November 2020. The 12th edition of this international initiative witnessed over 10,600 actions organised all over Europe (and beyond) by citizens, public authorities, schools, NGOs and businesses towards zero waste and pollution.

The 2020 edition of the EWWR drew attention to the topic of “Invisible waste”, namely the large amount of waste and related CO2 generated during the manufacturing process of products, which the consumer does not see. This includes waste generated by extracting resources, transporting, producing fuels and electricity, manufacturing, which may even be hazardous. By raising awareness on the impact generated by these industrial processes, the EWWR encouraged all stakeholders to take action for more sustainable production and consumption practices that prevent waste generation and its impact on air, soil and water pollution and help to create a toxic-free environment.

This will be a virtual event. Join us online on 1 June 2021 to discover the stars of the EWWR 2020!

The EWWR Awards will contribute celebrating best practices and highlighting the link between waste and pollution.
