What was done?
Since 2012, together with the Waste Agency of Catalonia and the Catalan Office for Climate Change, we have prepared the annual report showing the calculations of the greenhouse gas emissions generated and avoided through municipal waste management. This serves as a useful instrument for planning and decision-making aimed at mitigating climate change.
The results are presented for both the municipalities as well as the comarcas (larger areas within the provinces) they belong to and allow for a global vision of the entire waste management system. This facilitates the definition of strategies and policies of the Waste Agency of Catalonia.
