TMG has promoted 3R (reduce, reuse and recycle) approaches to reduce final waste disposal volumes and realize a sustainable urban environment.
Amid a growing threat of climate change and increasing restrictions on supply of resources, it is needed to promote integrated approache to create low-carbon and sound material-cycle society.
From such a point of view, TMG established the "Panel for New 3Rs Strategy". The panel produced a report in October 2009. To realize sustainable use of resources , TMG will develop the resource recycling strategy to address from an overall point of view the reduction in extraction of natural resources, GHG emissions and final waste disposal.
