Presented by EU Delegation to the US

Recycling and Re-use for Sustainable Living

Responsible consumption and production is one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that need to be achieved at global level by 2030. The EU is a main player on SDG policy mainstreaming, and leads the way on Circular Economy. In the US a number of cities and states are voluntarily committing themselves to sustainability. In Texas the cities of Austin and Houston have already ongoing commitments to address waste flows in a sustainable manner. The panel will present initiatives from both the EU and the US and showcase concrete examples of how businesses and citizens can make the difference and produce/live sustainably.
