Every year Sweden imports waste and gets paid for it says Fredrika Ornbrant, Consul General of Sweden in Mumbai.

In Sweden waste has become an Industry. Only 0.70% of the waste is going to land-fill, the rest is being used for energy-conservation. We are able to decrease our oil dependency and our economy has grown by 60%.

She was speaking on the topic ‘Making our Cities Smart- The Urban Transformation & Sustainability Challenge’ at the Global Nagpur Summit.
