“As a 20 years experienced manager in waste recycling, I aim to promote a paradigm shift in the way wastes are regarded: rather than an unwanted by-product of modern societies and their industrial activities, wastes can, through recycling, resource recovery and use for energy production, become a valuable asset. Waste management in accordance with environmental standards and certification schemes has the potential to promote green business opportunities, safe jobs, and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases. I see environmentally sound waste management as one of the most concrete ways to achieve the much debated Global Green Economy.”
