Together for a circular economy

Launched in May 2019 in Germany, the PREVENT Waste Alliance represents organisations from the private sector, academia, civil society and public institutions worldwide . It serves as a platform for exchange and international cooperation.



We connect stakeholders along value chains and bring together different perspectives. Get involved on our member platform PREVENT HUB here.

Pilot projects


In a call for solutions, we searched for innovative and sustainable solutions that contribute to a circular economy in low- and middle-income countries.

The 8 selected project teams have now been officially announced! They will start piloting their innovative ideas in 15 countries worldwide.

The PREVENT Waste Alliance


We want to contribute to minimising waste and eliminating pollutants. Therefore, we strive to develop functioning waste management and circular economy approaches in order to reduce waste pollution in low- and middle-income countries.
