Demand for plastic versus plastic waste collected by sector in 2018

Collection rates for plastic waste from most non-packaging sources are lower than rates for waste from the packaging sector. This is likely to be the result of the longer lifetime of non-packaging items, which leads to a build-up in homes and businesses of non-packaging plastic stocks-both of products in use and of those no longer in use, but kept in storage.

Number of high fire danger days in summer in the baseline period (1981-2010) and in 2041-2070 under RCP8.5 scenario

This map shows the number of high fire danger days in summer (June, July, August) in the baseline period (1981-2010) and in 2041-2070 under Representative Concentration Pathways 8.5 (RCP8.5) scenario. This Index is based on the Fire Weather Index (FWI). The index gives the number of days in a given period presenting favourable meteorological conditions to triggering a wildfire. The higher the Index, the higher the risk of wildfire.

Extreme precipitation days: baseline and future projections under the high-emissions scenario

The maps shows the number of days in a year with daily total precipitation exceeding the 95th percentile threshold of rainy days of a reference period 1981-2010. Projections are made under the RCP 8.5 scenario for high emissions. Interactive maps and additional information can be found in the European Climate Data Explorer.

Current municipal waste generation vs. three future scenarios

The chart compares the current residual and total municipal waste generation against 3 possible scenarios: 1) Business as usual (with a 3.7 % increase in total municipal waste) while meeting the 60 % recycling target; 2) A solution scenario, with a 3.7 % increase in total municipal waste that would be offset by 73 % recycling rate; 3) A solution scenario in which the 60 % recycling target would be met, and 34 % of total waste would be prevented
