Strategy

a a a

Lipor acknowledges climate change as one of the biggest challenges we currently face, which requires a coherent action from governments, organisations and citizens. Bearing in mind that waste management is, at the same time, a source of and a mitigation instrument for GHG emissions, Lipor acknowledges the importance of this theme to the sector and, particularly, to its activity.

Furthermore, as a result of Climate Change and bearing in mind the possible implications of non-action on Climate Adaptation, either to the structure and to business - high losses, infrastructure destruction and emergency situations - LIPOR will add to its strategy on climate change, the theme of ADAPTATION.

There will be four main areas to be worked within the ADAPTATION theme: (1) knowledge; (2) action; (3) mobilization; and (4) Cooperation.


The integration of Climate Change in Lipor’s activity is essential to its commitment to sustainable development, leading Lipor to take:

  • Climate change as a major threat to global sustainability and therefore top priority of their environmental and sustainable development policies;
  • The Response and Adaptation to Climate Change as structuring strategy of its daily activities;
  • Mobilization of citizens and society essential to reach its prevention and recycling goals;
  • Cooperation, as a structural area of ADAPTATION in its strategy on Climate Change (transition 2M => 3M), contributing to the diffusion of good practices, information and knowledge and for the outlining of sector level (WasteAdapt) and regional level (NorteAdapt) strategies.
