Communities and Climate Change: how a zero waste approach can take us closer to zero emissions
In 2015, world leaders signed up to the Paris Agreement. A bold set of ambitious promises set to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and therefore protect our communities, wildlife, oceans and natural ecosystems from the devastating effects of climate change. Nearly five years on, progress has been painfully slow and ineffective. Earlier this year, PACE released their second Circularity Gap Report which highlights that only 9% of the world is circular and that the trends all currently point to that figure getting worse, with resource extraction and emissions of greenhouse gases (GhG) increasing in the past two years.
