Abstract [en]

Economy and environment has for a long time been studied separately and seen as incompatible. With a growing society and increasing pressure on environmental issues the need of a new economy with the environment included is necessary. This study examine if European Union´s picture of the waste hierarchy match the reality. Since the purpose with the waste hierarchy is to benefit environmental and economy. A survey was made over Käppalaförbundets waste from 2013, to see where the waste falls in the waste hierarchy. The results shows that the waste falls on those steps that are favorable to the environment and the economy, but the environment aspect can be improved if some of the waste switch to a different step in the waste hierarchy. Better statistics on some waste areas is also necessary to get a result that is more certain. The conclusion in this study is that European Union´s picture of the waste hierarchy match the reality to a certain extent but in order to achieve sustainable development in the long run, several measures need to be taken.
