Denmark without waste II - a waste prevention strategy

We generate large amounts of waste - waste that could have been prevented to benefit the environment, the climate and the economy.

We have a common responsibility to protect the world’s natural resources. They are scarce and we must be more intelligent in the way that we use them in the future. This Waste Prevention Strategy aims to reduce wastage of resources and to prevent valuable resources from becoming waste in households and businesses throughout Denmark.
