Attitudes of europeans towards Waste management and resource efficiency

Resource efficiency and waste management are key elements of EU environmental policy and the Europe 2020 strategy. It is essential to get a clear picture of citizens’ attitudes on these topics, throughout all Member States, in order to better guide policy making in these fields. This survey seeks to understand citizens’ perceptions, attitudes and practices related to efficient use of resources, generation and management of waste, as well as elements of the so-called “circular economy” (including second-hand products and alternatives to buying new products).
