  11. 11. Moving towards recycling >> Focus on environment
  12. 12. >> Focus on environment <ul><li>Successful sectoral waste policy has brought many benefits, and is still necessary, but </li></ul><ul><li>(*) limitations of present policies are becoming clear, few gains to reach in traditional waste policy in the Netherlands </li></ul><ul><li>(*) environmental impact generated by current EU/NL patterns of resource use is too high (ecological footprint) </li></ul><ul><li>(*) scarcity in itself has become evident, while we still face an increasing demand for materials (in developed and developing countries) </li></ul><ul><li>(*) shift from waste to materials and supply chains </li></ul><ul><li>Chances for innovatie, business-cases, new coalitions </li></ul>Why Chain approach ?
  13. 13. The choice is (y)ours <ul><li>Traditional waste management solutions need to be applied to the full extend for separate collection and recycling worldwide </li></ul><ul><li>Traditional waste management alone can not solve the challenges we are facing regarding resource use and material & energy scarcity </li></ul><ul><li>We need to optimize material use and dematerialize our consumption </li></ul><ul><li>It is necessary to act on many levels and with many partners. </li></ul><ul><li>The question is not which instruments to apply, but how to apply and combine the available instrument. </li></ul><ul><li>Most important now is to raise awareness for the necessity of action and to create the right environment for these instruments to be applied </li></ul>>> Focus on environment
