MANILA (10 0CTOBER) - Ruth P. Briones, the Lead Convenor of the Zero Waste Philippines’ Project said on 7 October 2010 before representatives from local  government units (towns, cities and provinces) nationwide  at the LS Virata Hall of the Development Academy Headquarters in Pasig City that the Agenda of the project  is to come up  with a national agenda  and strategy  that will have 35 percent reduction of  greenhouse gas emissions and 100 percent waste elimination.

Briones, the Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Greenergy  Solutions Inc.  had  presented a ten-year  integrated  waste elimination plan based with  the concept of waste not as a “rubbish” but as a “resource”.   

Waste, Briones said should not be “ managed”  but “ eliminated, reused and revalued”  and with the 30,000 tons of municipal solid waste collected everyday nationwide, climate change and  environment should be the focus  not the dumps.

With the Plan, Zero Waste Philippines’ Project   means designing and managing products and processes to eliminate the volume of waste and materials as close as possible, conserve and recover all resources and not burn or bury them.  It  noted the  identification of long-term infrastructure needs to provide economically and environmentally efficient waste management services  like   Landfill Remediation Technologies and Facilities,   Waste-to-Energy Technologies and Facilities,  Material Recovery and Energy  Facilities,   Industrial Waste Treatment Technologies and  Recycling and composting programs as proposed  strategies.

The project will endeavor to come up with series of Forums and  workshops  nationwide within one (1) year  in order that a concerted National Zero Waste Agenda be finalized to be presented to the executive, and legislative departments of the government.

As part of the one-year strategy, there will  be  created  a nationwide online Zero Waste Survey. Based on nationwide input, develop Zero Waste messaging, branding, and logo. A  “ How Can I Go Zero?” public education campaign nationwide will start in schools and the creation of community based Climate Change  Teams and develop  Green Teams in all Barangays to improve, develop and build green efforts.

Briones, and former Congressman Neric Acosta are the convenors of the Zero Waste Philippines’Forum, with  Anita Celdran (Endesa Carbono), Techi Capellan (Swine Board of the Philippines) and Bernardo Tadeo ( Full Advantage) as sponsors. ( J.Briones)
