The ESA Net Zero Emissions Strategy
The world is experiencing a climate emergency and urgent efforts must be made to eliminate the man-made greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that cause global warming. Our sector has made almost unrivalled progress at reducing its emissions over the past thirty years, but we must go further.
As you will read in this report, the first comprehensive GHG assessment for our sector has shown that our activities, while saving more emissions across the wider economy than they produce, still account for 8% of the UK total. That is why the ESA and its members have produced this ambitious strategy as a blueprint for the recycling and waste management sector to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040.
We believe this target is both credible and progressive and ESA members stand ready to invest billions of pounds over the next decade in the infrastructure, technology and skills needed to scale up our approach and meet this challenge.
