The Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) has welcomed the pledge from the Environment Ministers Meeting (EMM) to work with the private sector to design out waste and pollution, keep materials in use and foster strong end markets to achieve a circular economy by 2030.

“Innovation is only possible and sustainable with strong markets for recycled products. If we are serious about supporting better product design and more efficient production processes, we need governments — as Australia’s largest infrastructure client and major procurer of goods — to play a key role in leading market demand for recycled content and providing strong incentives to businesses,”
