Policy & Strategy

Eunomia develops coherent, fully-costed and forward thinking waste policies and strategies, at the European, national, regional and municipal level.

Eunomia has developed both a deepening expertise in respect of the formulation of policies and strategies, and a comprehensive understanding of the factors influencing operational delivery. As a result, we able to develop cutting-edge strategies, and back them with credible implementation plans, whilst assisting in delivery using our proven expertise in procurement.

Increasingly, our clients want to understand how they can shift practices and behaviour so that waste is seen as a resource rather than a problem to be dealt with. Increasingly, they are looking to design waste out of the system in a transition to a circular economy.

We are able to deliver:

  • National level waste management plans and strategies, and waste prevention programmes;
  • National level policy proposals;
  • Regional waste management plans and waste prevention programmes;
  • Waste management plans and waste prevention programmes at the municipal level;
  • Guidance in the preparation of waste management plans and waste prevention programmes;
  • Training in the development of waste management plans and waste prevention programmes;
  • Bespoke toolkits to help regions and municipalities to evaluate options in the context of the development of their waste management plans and programmes;
  • Bespoke models to understand the costs and benefits of waste management planning; and
  • Supporting analysis (such as strategic environmental assessments, options appraisals, priority investment planning).

We have conducted countless exercises with municipalities and regions, and several influential national level projects. We have helped forward-thinking nations, such as Wales and Scotland, to understand the costs and benefits of their ambitious proposals for the management of waste in future. Whenever governments seek to change their waste management for the better, they find us to be creative and commercially astute partners.
