Why is it important?

The amount of wastes generated in Europe grows by 10 percent per year. This trend must be reversed if the Europeans want to avoid being submerged by rubbish. The launched method creates incentives for improvement of companies' profitability and environmental impact.


The results of my study will have a substantial positive impact on profits. This is a consequence of the companies’ acting in accordance with the principle of sustainable development.
