For this week’s Awards spotlight, we’re focusing on the #Cities4ZeroWaste finalists that are transitioning our cities away from the landfil, and toward a greener way of processing (even repurposing!) urban waste.
The C40 Waste to Resources Network is working with progressive cities looking to transition to a more sustainable management of materials and resources, with actions focused on reducing residual waste generation, prevention, reuse and recycling to keep valuable materials from entering the residual waste stream.
Expert Voices: Antonis Mavropoulos, President of ISWA, on the importance of C40’s Deadline 2020 research
At the end of 2016, just a few days before Donald Trump named Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general and a close ally of the fossil fuel industry, as his choice to run the Environmental Protection Agency, C40, a network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change, released its new report Deadline 2020.
Today, C40 announced the 35 finalists competing in ten urban climate action categories for the fourth-annual C40 Cities Awards, sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies and BYD. The winners will be announced on December 1, 2016, at a ceremony in Mexico City, held alongside the sixth biennial C40 Mayors Summit.
The C40 has been voted unanimously by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Initiative partners to act as co-chair alongside the US Department of State. C40 will replace Environment Canada, which recently concluded its tenure as co-chair and will remain actively engaged in the Initiative.
