ACR v2 r02The More Circularity, Less Carbon campaign is releasing a new assessment of the carbon fooprint of waste of its second cohort. ACR+ member Odense (Denmark) has an ambitious plan to become climate neutral by 2030. As one of the steps towards this objective, its waste management company Odense Renovation received support from ACR+ and ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland to assess Odense's carbon footprint linked with municipal waste generation and management. Based on this, different scenarios investigate how to achieve a reduction of 25% of the carbon emissions linked with local resource management by 2025. For Odense, a reduction of 25% means to move from an estimated 140,000 tCO2eq to a total of 105,000 tCO2eq, thus reducing the waste carbon impacts by approximately 35,000 tCO2eq. The analysis identifies two strategies for Odense to meet the 2025 carbon reduction target: reducing by 40% textile and plastic waste and by 20% the other targeted materials (i.e., food, paper and cardboard, mixed metals); or introducing a waste reduction target of 28% for all materials.Read the detailed analysis here.
