Creating a circular economy
Why the global economy simply has to be circular to survive
The UN has predicted that the human population will rise from 7.6 billion to 11.2 billion by the end of the century. This, coupled with rising consumption, is creating relentless demand for materials and fossil fuels and putting unsustainable pressure on our planet’s resources.
It is also leading to soaring greenhouse gas emissions which are driving climate change and destroying natural habitats. According to the World Wildlife Fund, we have lost half of our wildlife in the past 40 years alone. Moreover, the world’s leading climate scientists have warned that, unless we can limit global warming to 1.5°c by 2030, we face a catastrophic chain of extreme weather events that will threaten the lives of millions of people.
