    National Waste Prevention Programme Annual Report 2014.

    Waste Prevention is a critical part of resource efficiency and addresses not just ‘waste’ but wastage of
    resources in the broadest terms. Reducing inefficient or inappropriate use of raw materials and
    resources clearly offers a more sustainable path to prosperity and reduces environmental impact.
    Prevention of waste is at the pinnacle of the waste hierarchy and may be achieved through reducing the
    overall demand for goods and services and/or by imposing production efficiency through using less (or at
    least less harmful) materials throughout the life-cycle of a product or service.
