Waste Management, Energy and Transport
As the world rushes forward, the buildup of waste and pollution creates a lasting impact. Mallorca, unfortunately, is not immune to this global issue and has seen a staggering 67.42% increase in waste production between 2000 and 2021.
This rise can be attributed to a multitude of factors such as population growth, economic development, and tourism, which have placed strain on the island’s resources and had a detrimental effect on the environment and the quality of life for the residents. In terms of energy, the Balearic Islands are heavily reliant on non-renewable fossil fuels, with only 2.3% coming from sustainable sources. This low number highlights the pressing need for a transition towards renewable energy sources, breaking the chains of dependence on finite resources and reducing our overall energy consumption.
It is time for action, a call to preserve the delicate balance of our beloved island. Therefore, we are working to promote ta circular economy and the energy transition, which are key to tackling these global problems.
