Socio-economic Determinants of Sustainble Consumption and Production II. Proceedings of Scientific Papers



Ensuring sustainable consumption is a huge challenge for today's consumers. Achieving sustainable consumption presupposes the elimination2 of the extent of consumption and more efficient management of the waste generated. We have identified two levels of potential improvements in waste management. The first level is to reduce the amount of waste produced. The second is the reuse of waste that has already been generated. This article evaluates the state and development of waste management in individual regions of the Slovak Republic to identify the leaders of this effort.
