One of the big challenges with waste prevention involves trying to set quantitative targets and to quantify the results of waste prevention efforts. To help fill these gaps, ACR+ has published a guide on quantitative benchmarks for waste prevention. The guide consists of a thorough review of the waste prevention prescriptions contained in the new Waste Framework Directive, an in-depth research on the principles and applications of benchmarking and, finally, a systematic effort to capture, in a European context, 95 quantitative waste prevention examples that, through voluntary actions, exemplify the potential waste reductions achievable at regional and local level.
