16 December 2021 ESCAP's Commitment to Waste Management

The ESCAP Waste Management Strategy has managed to reach 71% waste recycling in 2020, starting from 24% back in 2017 (baseline year). ESCAP has covered the entire waste generation and management cycle to ensure this result (what is generated, why (prevention), how it is segregated (recycling bins), how it is sorted (new waste sorting station), how to recycle more (market research to find more recyclers for waste which allowed ESCAP to reach 71%), and awareness campaigns (videos, flyers, etc.,) involving senior management, staff, and contractors as champions/actors). As a priority, ESCAP strives to support social initiatives that support local communities through recycled waste.
