3R Initiative

The 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) Initiative was launched at the Ministerial Conference on the 3R Initiative in Tokyo, Japan, in April 2005, with an aim to shift the global consumption and production patterns towards building a sound-material-cycle society . This was following the Sea Island Summit where G8 countries agreed to establish the 3R Initiative in 2005, recognizing the importance of reducing barriers to the international flow of goods and materials for recycling and remanufacturing, developing capacity for 3Rs in developing countries, and encouraging multi-stakeholder collaboration. UNCRD is collaborating with the Ministry of the Environment of the Government of Japan and other partners to further promote activities in 3R, especially in the developing countries in Asia-Pacific.
