Environmental consultancy Eunomia has been chosen to review current regulatory framework for waste prevention and recycling in Nordic regions.

Alongside other subcontractors, Eunomia was asked by Nordic Council of Ministers Waste Group (NWG) and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to understand the effects of policy relating to managing household waste.

Data will be interpreted alongside country specifics such as household income, consumption behaviour and existing infrastructure.

The second part of the project will then focus on the necessary policies needed to be introduced to meet European recycling targets.

Joe Papineschi, Eunomia project director, said: “I hope this inspires other parts of Europe to start thinking about how they’re going to meet the more ambitious targets announced in the new Circular Economy Package.

“During the project we will be focussing in particular on the upper tiers of the hierarchy, prevention and recycling, though we will also consider the other tiers.”

The review will cover approaches in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and the Åland Islands.

It will use the Waste Framework Directive definition of municipal waste so evidence can easily be compared across European countries.
