The launch of the ECO Observatory

In order to improve recycling performance rates and encourage best practices, Ecorec has launched an ambitious initiative with the creation of the Circular Economy ECO-Observatory.
The overall organization and operation concerns the systematic monitoring and evaluation of Sustainable waste management data in Greece, as well as the monitoring of international Best Available Techniques in waste management.
The ECO-Observatory funding will come from:
a) support from sustainable waste management stake holders that share common goals with the ECO-Observatory,
b) Ecorec’s own resources and volunteers,
c) potential financial support from public bodies.
The cooperation with supporters is not binding, nor does it affect the ECO Observatory assessments and recommendations on good practices by any sustainable waste management operators/handlers.
The ECO Observatory retains full independence in composing its opinions and proposals.
