Waste - Drivers and pressures (Germany)
Generated waste fell between 2000 and 2005 as economic performance improved, reflecting a considerable decrease in the waste intensity of the German economy. The net generated quantity of waste increased again in 2006 and 2007. Waste intensity stagnated accordingly and even increased slightly in 2007. This is mainly attributable to the increase in the quantity of building and demolition waste generated.
