The PREVENT Waste Alliance

More than 30 organizations from the private sector, academia, civil society and public institutions have launched the PREVENT Waste Alliance in May 2019 in Germany. It serves as a platform for exchange and international cooperation.

Challenges and Objectives

PREVENT wants to contribute to minimising waste, eliminating pollutants and maximising the reuse of resources in the economy worldwide.

We work together for waste prevention, collection, and recycling as well as the increased uptake of secondary resources in low and middle- income countries. We focus on waste from plastic packaging and single use products as well as waste from electrical and electronic equipment. Here you can find an overview of the current projects.

Structure and Organization

The PREVENT Waste Alliance is a multi-stakeholder partnership that brings together different actors from the private sector, academia, civil society and public institutions.

Structure and Organization

Strategic decisions and the public representation of this alliance are made by a steering committee.
All organizations involved in the Alliance are part of the plenary, which meets annually.

The members and partners of the alliance are involved in thematic working groups.
The secretariat organises and supports committees and working groups and is responsible for the communication and public representation of PREVENT.

Renowned experts and stakeholders, in particular international initiatives and organizations, submit proposals to an advisory board.
