MaConsigne set to transform takeaways!


On 13 June, the Mission for Energy Transition officially launched the MaConsigne scheme for takeaways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iatu0_P9QEk

With MaConsigne, the Prince’s Government is continuing its commitment to a “zero single-use plastic by 2030” policy, through the gradual elimination of single-use packaging. The stated goal is to make progress on the path towards zero waste. 

Twenty-six partner sales outlets are offering, instead of non-reusable containers, a selection of returnable glass containers in four different sizes. After use, they can be left unwashed within 14 days at 20 collection points throughout the city!

The free MaConsigne app allows users to locate the businesses involved so that they can help the Government to cut down on single-use plastic. 

This circular waste management project ticks all the boxes.

  • It has been designed to have a short loop, with stakeholders fully integrated within the Monegasque ecosystem: collection, washing and redistribution are being handled by local stakeholders.


  • It is also an opportunity for the local economy. Less transport, more local purchases, the creation of direct jobs... there are many ways of reducing our emissions that can help to generate employment and create new resources and innovation in the Principality.


  • Finally, the scheme will support restaurants as the forthcoming ban on single-use plastic packaging comes into effect. 

From the genesis of the project to how it works, partners, the circular economy – all aspects of this new way of buying takeaway food can be found on our social media pages and on the Carbon Coach platform: https://pacte-coachcarbone.mc/news/121

(In 2020, the incineration of plastic was the leading source of greenhouse gases in the Principality, accounting for 23% of our emissions, while in 2021, more than 2 million disposable containers were used. Managing waste has become a crucial issue, and returnable containers, a tangible example of reuse and the circular economy, are already back in fashion in many countries.)
