According to the World Bank, every year we burn, pile and bury nearly 1.3 billion tons of waste. By 2050, that number will be 4 billion. More than 90% of waste in low- and middle-income countries goes to unmanaged dumpsites. Rather than being recovered as recyclate, fuel, energy or otherwise re-used, the waste is simply added to an ever-increasing environmental and public health problem that causes more than 4.6 million deaths a year, pollutes priceless water resources, attracts disease-carrying insects, creates greenhouse gases and contaminates food sources.

Sustainable WasteResources International envisions a world where all waste is embraced as a resource that has value, much like natural resources such as oil, gas and minerals. The extraction of value from waste will mitigate social, economic and environmental challenges associated with our global growing waste issue which will only become more complex as consumption increases and populations grow.

The goal of Sustainable WasteResources International is to catalyze the use of waste as a resource by providing stakeholders tools and solutions to enable maximum extraction of value from, and mitigation of, waste. Our team of global experts provides data, analytics, tools and know-how that drive socially and environmentally sound solutions for the use of waste as a resource.
