Cities on every continent are rising to the challenge of delivering on the highest ambition of the Paris Agreement.

“The sustainable, prosperous and liveable cities of the future will ultimately need to be zero-waste cities.”

Waste management is one of the primary services that city governments provide and is a sector over which governments exercise considerable authority. It is a realisation that we need to recognise bold action on waste management is key to making our urban centres cleaner, healthier, more resilient and inclusive.

Global waste generation is increasing faster than any other environmental pollutant.

At The Pet Poo People, we believe action within this sector should have a much greater impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The International Solid Waste Association estimates that when all waste management actions, including disposal, recycling, composting and treatment, are considered, the waste sector could cut 10 to 15% of GHG emissions globally.

When actions to reduce waste generation are also taken into account, the sector could reduce up to 20% of the global emissions.


Types of waste, including pet waste, reuse and recycle schemes, will not only reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills or incinerators but can create jobs and economic opportunities for social entrepreneurs and vulnerable communities. Having worked in Pet Waste Management for several years, the team at The Pet Poo People wants to change that and make it as easy as possible for you to do good things for the environment.

By reducing the amount of waste disposed of in landfills and incinerators, working to decouple economic activity from the consumption of finite resources can help massively. Circular economy initiatives can protect natural resources, clean the air that people breathe and the water they drink while also making cities more efficient, prosperous and competitive.

To deliver our ambitious climate goals, we know that by 2030 we must have transformed our solid waste and material management systems to put us on track for a climate-safe future. That is why measurable and inclusive actions reduce municipal solid waste generation and improve materials management in our cities.

With Project Zero, The Pet Poo People’s mission is to do things that positively impact our environment in the best way, aiming to do this by cleaning up pet waste from people’s gardens, leading to bigger things in the future.
