ACR v2 r02

Following six other ACR+ members, Belfast has now assessed the carbon footprint of its household waste which amounted to 360 000 tCO2eq in 2020. To achieve the 25% reduction target of the ACR+ ‘More Circularity Less Carbon’ campaign, the city needs to reduce this footprint by 90 000 tCO2eq by 2025. The efforts should focus on the most carbon-intensive fractions, namely reducing textile and food waste and increasing plastic recycling. This was shown by an analysis of the Carbon Footprint of Waste in Belfast, measured with the Carbon Metric International tool, developed by ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland

The methodology and further results are summarised in the carbon footprint of waste of Belfast report
