Ystad municipality

It started with an innovation procurement in autumn 2014 and has resulted in a collaboration that has now led Ystad municipality to compete in reuse with other municipalities!



As one of our activities in our environmental program’s goal in “All the municipalities have a conservation that is gentle for the environment and socially sustainable”, the off2off concept has clearly shown that the claimed benefits are true to reality and that we live more as we learn Sustainable consumption. As the state-owned circular economy survey (From Value Chain to Value Cycle) writes: “Local authorities and government authorities have a special responsibility to prevent waste in their operations, as well as role models for individuals and businesses, and as users of tax assets”. It is also proposed that the municipality’s obligation to prevent waste in its operations be clarified and also described. Something that Ystad looks forward to. We have been spinning a circular think in our business with clear results. Now we want to take the step further and compete with other municipalities. Who will be the 2018 best municipality for reuse?
