Tackling root causes: halting biodiversity loss through the circular economy
A circular economy plays a key role in halting and reversing global biodiversity loss. Sitra’s new study Tackling root causes – halting biodiversity loss through the circular economy Länk till annan webbplats.reveals that circular solutions have a significant potential to halt global biodiversity loss. Join the discussion online – the findings of Sitra’s new study and its linkages to key business and policy measures.
The solutions already exist, and if applied immediately, circular interventions in four key sectors can halt biodiversity loss even if no other action is taken. And more than that, the study finds that the world’s biodiversity could recover to 2000 levels by 2035, if the circular interventions captured in the study are implemented.
The study is the first to quantify the role a circular economy can play in tackling global biodiversity loss, targeting four sectors with the largest impacts: food and agriculture, buildings and construction, fibres and textiles, and forestry and the forest industry.
What do the findings imply for decision-makers, both in business and policymaking? And how can we all contribute to speed up the transition to a circular economy that leaves more room for nature to thrive?
The event will be introduced by a keynote speech from Johan Rockström, outlining the planetary crises we are facing.
The study’s results will be shared by Tim Forslund, Specialist at the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra. Thereafter, a panel discussion with Florika Fink-Hooijer of the Directorate-General for the Environment of the European Commission, Joss Blériot from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and Corli Pretorius from the UN’s World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC).
