ARGE was established in 1982 as a non-profit association with the mission of contributing to sustainable development in its economic, environmental and social dimensions. Through its activities focusing on the social economy sector and specifically on waste prevention and waste management, ARGE is constantly in contact with an extensive network of social economy partners. Since 20 years ARGE is engaged in developing new business fields relating to sustainable environmental services for social enterprises and in the implementation of environmental projects mainly for public authorities, institutions and social enterprises. ARGE is combining the two topics of employment and environment, being a 50% shareholder of the social enterprise Öko-Service Ltd. (www.oekoservice.at) and has been responsible for the development of its environmental business activities. ARGE has also manifold experience in the field of environmental training and developed and implemented a training program for municipal waste consultants. All in all about 300 waste consultants are now employed in municipalities and waste management associations in Austria.
