The Environment Ministry wants to keep the term of the Solid Waste Law (Law 12.305/10) to the end of the dumps, scheduled for August 2014. A very difficult condition to be achieved by most of the city fathers, according to the ministry.

According to Secretary of Water Resources and the Urban Environment, the Ministry of Environment, Ney Maranhão, "there is no study in the ministry directed to support the extension of this deadline. What is the Ministry's assessment of the effort required and the organization of this effort to try to meet this deadline, Maranhão said during a seminar on the subject organized, on Thursday (6), the Commission for Environment and Sustainable Development.

The Secretary pointed out that there is no compromise with the postponement of the deadline, although the Ministry recognizes that mayors are moving in the face of the difficulties they encounter, some of them, to meet this goal. "According Ney Maranhão, the subject is complex and goes beyond the search for the proper disposal of the waste generated. Solution, in its view, also goes by the revaluation of modes of production and consumption in Brazil.

<b> 273 000 tons / day garbage </ b>

According to the representative of the NGO Akatu, Dalberto Adulis, the volume of waste in the country increased by 60 tons per day between 2007 and 2013, and today is 273 000 tons / day.

The environmentalist points out that 47% of Brazilians sort rubbish dry wet, according to the Ministry of Environment. For him, it is necessary to expand this index and also the awareness that every citizen of the consumption process has an impact.

"The idea of ​​conscious consumption you reflect on the need, makes the correct choice, uses the product, and then think about the disposal noted Adulis. If you used a product that can be recycled later is better because, at the time of screening , it goes back to nature or will become another product. "

<b> Plan for sustainable consumption </ b>

In partnership with society and the private sector, the Ministry of Environment launched a plan in 2011 to expand the sustainable consumption in the country The goal is that by 2014, the percentage of consumers aware fold from 5% to 10%.

In the plan, companies and governments are also considered part of the process. The President of the Ethos Institute for Business and Social Responsibility, Jorge Abraham, estimates that, for now, most Brazilian companies have not adopted sustainability into their business plans.

"Most companies did not take this agenda. Moreover, there are companies that are leading this process and, therefore, we believe it will be recognized by, Abraham says. The question of reputation and corporate image is key and companies that are involved in issues that impact on society, and society has this perception, they will be the companies of the future. "
