In September 2015, the 193 states that conposes the United Nations General Assembly agreed on a roadmap for the exponential growth of the world population in 2050. The plan was reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, where 17 are established Sustainable Development Goals. The objectives are the response to the challenges of the present moment, to restore the ecological balance of the planet and to tackle the most urgent social challenges: the end of poverty and inequalities, thereby improving the living conditions of the population.
The Agenda requires changing the current production and consumption model towards a circular economy, which implies producing more while consuming less, reducing the impact of our activity on the environment without depleting natural resources. Recycling is the lever to promote sustainable production, consumption and life styles.
