To fulfil the Paris Agreement we need a circular economy

Tierr@_de_N@die: To tackle just with transportation and energy production will not be enough to face the environment challenge. A most wide approach embracing the whole life cycle of the materials, products and land use is urgently required.

We need to take a holistic approach and address all sources of greenhouse gas emissions, which is where the circular economy comes in. Applying circular economy strategies for the five most common materials in our economy — cement, aluminium, steel, plastics, and food — can eliminate almost half of the remaining emissions from the production of goods, or 9.3 billion tonnes of CO2e by 2050, equivalent to all the global emissions from today’s transport.
