The benefits to biodiversity of a strong circular economy
Biodiversity is both vital for healthy ecosystems and the foundation of our well-being and economy. However, it is under severe threat. The root of the problem is our current unsustainable production and consumption systems. The circular economy is key to transforming these systems.
This briefing explores how the circular economy can reduce the impacts of production and consumption on biodiversity, with a focus on reducing primary resource demand, preventing pollution and biodiversity-friendly sourcing.
