Competitiveness and Creates
Global business drives global production and consumption, leading to increasingly high standards of living – but at what expense to future generations and our planet?
While companies play a crucial role in creating solutions to prevent environmental crises, “business as usual” will not get us close to achieving the UN sustainable development goals within the next decade.
In the current development of consumption, it is impossible to reduce emissions to zero. There are billion tonnes of materials entering the global economy each year, but only tiny part are recycled or re-used.
When it comes to the circular economy and keeping valuable materials in use longer, technology can accelerate the circular benefits for businesses. Companies can reap huge economic benefits from materials that are continuously being wasted.
