What should be prioritised among response to climate change and transition to a circular economy?

Circular economy is a resource management strategy for the planet.

CE and climate change are related and need integrated strategy

To make transition to a non-renewable energy, resource management becomes crucial

Our linear model is effectively no longer fit for purpose, failing both people and the planet. Circular economy strategies have the potential to be instrumental in the push to mitigate the associated climate impacts, given that majority (67%) of global greenhouse gas emissions are related to material management”

Therefore embarking on a circular economy journey would accelerate actions taken to tackle climate change. So, climate change and circular economy are related and require an integrated strategy.

Transition to renewable energy needs resources – e.g., metals to be carefully managed. Circular Economy provides strategies to manage the biosphere through processes that help to re-integrate nutrients to the environment.
