What we stand for

Our vision

Our vision is to greatly reduce global waste of resources and environmental pollution through a functioning, sustainable circular economy.

Many countries in sub-Sahara Africa are suffering from fast growing amounts of waste, while the necessary infrastructure and know-how are lacking. The quality of life of the population and the emissions into the environment worldwide depend on a functioning waste management and recycling system. Our actions will lead to immediate and significant improvements. We always do this with the 17 sustainable development goals in mind.
