2009-05-15

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2008/2009

At a moment where prices of raw materials are shooting up, and people are increasingly concerned about environmental issues, the waste question cannot be set aside. The purpose of this essay is to analyse waste management in France. What has been done? What are the weaknesses and what should be done to improve waste management? What are the most efficient public and private policies to enforce in order to optimize the raw materials consumption? How to develop a feeling of individual responsibility among French people and instill in them sustainable ways of living and consuming to prevent environmental problems?
