The working group studies “Zero Waste” in the context of environment and “Circular Economy” in the context of economy/finance within the framework of the “Sustainability” approach.

Zero Waste is a waste management philosophy that aims to reduce waste generation processes by analyzing waste generation processes in addition to issues such as preventing extravagance, recycling / recovery of waste and efficient / productive use of resources. In today’s world where concerns related to the environment are intensely on the agenda and the world and its livability that people will leave to further generations are being questioned, this working group plans to carry out joint activities with all stakeholder institutions in the country.

Through the concept of Circular Economy, it is aimed to work on an economic system that overlaps with values ​​such as the concept of Zero Waste and Sustainable Environment goals.

This working group carries out activities on a production-oriented economic system paradigm with Zero Interest rate as well as the basis of the circular economy such as prevention of extravagance and carbon emission. In this context, activities are planned to be jointly conducted by the relevant stakeholder institutions and organizations.
