Green (Living) Review

CIWEM advocates that an integrated, life-cycle approach would help to preserve natural capital, reduce externalities and increase efficiency. The UK government''s ''zero waste'' economy objective is highly desirable but unrealistic. We need to push responsibility for waste up the supply chain and put a brake on waste by design.
