At a European level, most EU Countries have carried out waste prevention initiatives, even though different targets and indicators are used, which make the comparison quite difficult. A fundamental contribution to this virtuous process can derive also from the initiatives of single organisations. Together with prevention practices, to pursue a greater overall sustainability, actions of circular management of end-of-life management actions are decisive. To this end, suitable assessment tools that could highlight the environmental benefits coming from the proposed solutions must be adopted.

In this seminar, new approaches, good practices and case studies will be presented, which can show remarkable advancements in the achievement of more sustainable procedures of prevention and management of residues, discards, by-products, both from industrial and municipal sources.
