People, the planet and the various economies are vulnerable to climate change, so we need to try to limit this change by working on the factors that cause it, also trying to adapt our world to coexist with what has already changed, limiting the damage as much as possible. A cultural, social and economic change is required and our survival and that of our planet depends on it. Knowledge, monitoring, innovation, sharing, collaboration and funding are the essential elements to achieve it.

Global waste generation is estimated to grow from 2.24 billion tonnes in 2020 to 3.88 billion tonnes in 2050. In addition to basic waste data metrics, the reports provide information on costs, revenues and tariffs, as well as an analysis of case studies for production diversification.
