Connecting Leaders to shape a Zero Waste Future
WHY IS WASTE SUCH A BIG DEAL?
“Without urgent action, global waste will increase 70% by 2050 compared to current levels. We have to change this trajectory.” – The World Bank
Let’s look at how plastic, for instance, which nearly everyone, everywhere comes in contact with, is destroying entire ecosystems.
The World Forum says plastics have become the ubiquitous workhorse material of the modern economy. Given the projected growth in consumption, by 2050 oceans are expected to contain more plastics than fish (by weight), and the entire plastics industry will consume 20% of total oil production and 15% of the annual carbon budget.
Applying a circular economy mindset to refuse, reduce, recycle and reimagine waste, we can turn the challenges of our current plastics and disposable economy into a global opportunity for innovation and value capture, resulting in stronger economies and better environmental outcomes.
Other waste polluting sources include textile and clothing, technology, construction, water, energy, food and more.
The Good News – By taking action now, we can change the narrative before our world becomes unsustainable. The survival of the natural systems that all humanity depends on, is at stake.
