Many European municipalities today are aware of the need to implement more zero waste strategies and solutions, given the urgency of the environmental crisis facing us. Yet when it comes to practical implementation, often one of the biggest barriers local authorities face is accessing adequate financial resources. Whilst evidence shows how zero waste strategies can help local communities save money, investment in infrastructure and human resources is often required to help begin this transition.
From the European Union to central banks, EPR schemes and private capital, there are several sources of funding available for municipalities today. Yet each of these sources remain often opaque and inaccessible to most European municipalities. This webinar will examine the benefits and challenges each of these funding sources provide, as well as look at how municipalities have successfully secured and used these funding sources to enable their own local zero waste strategies.
This webinar will go into greater depth to answer these key questions:
- What current sources of finance are available to European municipalities to help them implement zero waste strategies?
- What kind of financing is needed and how much does typical investment in zero waste solutions cost?
- Who are the relevant partners within the finance world that municipalities should be working with and what role should they play?
