Green Economy – Waste Management

The Business Chamber pays special attention to promoting the development of a green economy according to the experience of advanced countries, including India (in the process of waste recycling). Georgia has taken an essential step in implementing environmental measures and waste management after the EU Association Agreement. The waste management sector was established and drafted at the legislative level (e.g., the Waste Management Code), reflecting business and trade relations.

Waste Management and Related Challenges

Sorting some waste fractions (paper, plastic, metal, and glass) of Tbilisi began in 2014-2015; however, despite many practical measures, the problem remains. According to the founders of the Organization, the involvement of the business sector in this process is very important; it is necessary to establish a unified management system and change it periodically together with the updating of data. In this regard, the Organization will constantly cooperate with various non-governmental and governmental organizations since a healthy environment is the right of our next generation.
The Business Chamber believes that the negative impact on the environment will also affect the country’s economic climate, as polluted soil and untidy landfills are not attractive to any potential investor.
Since Georgia does not have enormous natural resources, it is urgent to reuse the existing ones. For example, handing over glass bottles to the enterprise for its reuse is a proven method in our country. The cost, energy, and resource savings are done together as technological processing of the product are no longer required.
