INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT supports local, regional and national government institutions worldwide in developing adapted waste management strategies and introducing integrated waste management systems to protect our global goods, climate and health. We work closely with the involved institutions, relevant stakeholders and the affected civil society. In this way, we support the development of suitable underlying conditions for the technical and institutional realization of circular economy and waste management concepts under fair financial and social conditions.

By improving waste management and promoting the circular economy, we take responsibility for our planet and support sustainable protection of our environment and natural resources. With the help of adapted, integrated waste management systems, we close material cycles and protect water, soil, climate and human health. However, we can only implement good infrastructural solutions successfully if we create the necessary underlying conditions on the ground – legally, institutionally, financially and also in terms of social policy.
