UNIDO, BIR join hands to support sustainable recycling practices, industries

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) have signed a joint declaration on their intention to cooperate closely. They aim to promote inclusive and sustainable industrial development by supporting sustainable recycling practices and industries, and better use of resources.

“Recycling is an industry that is growing rapidly and that will, over the next years, provide sustainable and inclusive jobs to millions of people as well as contribute billions to the global economy,” said BIR President Ranjit S. Baxi at the signing ceremony taking place in Vienna, Austria. “This contributes to the achievements of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and to the transition to a circular economy.”

The BIR is the largest international recycling federation in the world. Its mission is to promote materials recycling and facilitate free and fair trade of recyclables in a sustainable and competitive world economy.

The joint declaration was signed by LI Yong, Director General of UNIDO, and Ranjit Baxi. The two parties agreed to raise awareness of the importance of recycling industries and their potential to create jobs and prosperity, while preserving resources. In addition, they will encourage manufacturers to design products which are easier to recycle.

UNIDO DG Li said, “This joint declaration is a clear signal of good cooperation and aligned agendas between BIR and UNIDO,” adding, “Recycling and developing recycling industries globally are issues that are pertinent to the inclusive and sustainable industrial development agenda.”

UNIDO and BIR agreed to work together on specific activities and events, such as seminars, country presentations, global forums, and similar initiatives aimed at supporting inclusive and sustainable industrial development. In November 2018, UNIDO will organize a meeting of international experts, including members of BIR, to address barriers to the development of recycling industries.

BIR Director General Arnaud Brunet concluded: “I am convinced that this is just the beginning of a long-term partnership between our two global organizations that will deliver tangible and positive outcomes around the world.”

UNIDO supported the first ever Global Recycling Day in 2017, an initiative of the BIR to help recognize, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet.
