DAKOFA - Waste and Resource Network Denmark
DAKOFA - Waste and Resource Network Denmark is an independent member-based organisation. Our primary task is to prepare the Danish waste and resource sector for navigating in a dynamic society, but just as importantly, in a globalised world. New framework conditions, increasing demand for resource efficiency, stricter legal requirements as well as external pressure for continual environmental improvement creates a strong need for sharing knowledge, information, experience and innovation.
DAKOFA collects knowledge and experience on waste and resources from both Denmark and abroad. We develop, organise and coordinate seminars, conferences, network meetings and workshops where learning, knowledge sharing and innovation are in focus. We cover the entire waste and resource area, including clean technology, product policy, waste prevention and resource efficiency.
DAKOFA has roughly 250 members including national and local authorities, private organisations, research institutions, local authorities and intermunicipal waste management companies, waste producers, waste handlers, transport companies, consultants and suppliers, all of whom operate within the field of waste and resources.
DAKOFA is the only association in the area where both private and public actors can meet on neutral grounds to exchange experience and views in a non-political forum.
DAKOFA is the Danish national member of ISWA - International Solid Waste Association. ISWA is a global, independent and non-profit association, working in the public interest and is the only worldwide association promoting sustainable, comprehensive and professional waste management. ISWA was founded in 1970 has more than 1,400 members from more than 90 countries, thereof National Member Organisations in 40 countries.
DAKOFA has several less formalised cooperation with likeminded associations where we share information and knowledge for the benefit of actors in both Denmark and abroad.
