Political strategies & targets

Waste & resource management plan 2024 and Copenhagen Climate Action Plan


The Circular Copenhagen platform is linked to Copenhagen’s ambitious waste and resource management plan (link), which has three overall targets:

• 70 % recycling of MSW in 2024,
• Reuse rate increase by three times in 2024 than in 2018
• CO2-reduction of 59.000 tonnes.

The third target also contributes to Copenhagen’s Climate Action Plan (link), which will make Copenhagen the world’s first carbon neutral capital by 2025.
