Action on World's Waste Can Help Combat Climate Change

Cancún, Mexico – The waste management sector is contributing 3-5 per cent of global man-made greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, equal to around the current emissions from international aviation and shipping, according to some estimates.

But the report says the waste sector is in a strong position to move from being an emissions source to being a major emissions saver, in part by harvesting the methane from rubbish tips for fuel and electricity generation. In doing so, the sector can play a role in bridging the gap between where emissions need to be in 2020 and where . . . → Read More: Action on World's Waste Can Help Combat Climate Change
