Appropriate Evaluation Benchmarks and Indicators for Measuring the Success of Waste Prevention Measures


With reference to the federal Waste Prevention Programme (WPP), the Circular Economy Act stipulates that standards for waste prevention measures must be specified to record the progress made in decoupling the effects on people and the environment associated with waste generation from economic growth. The WPP identifies possible indicators, but it is unknown to which extent they can represent waste generation or effects of waste prevention measures. Possible evaluation criteria for the measurement of waste prevention success was analysed, their suitability were tested and a set of indicators was developed to enable a continuous measurement of the success of waste prevention measures.
