There is a politically agreed global target to limit the global average temperature rise to 1.5c. Anything above this is likely to lead to irreversible damage.
The world is seeing the adverse effect waste is having on this temperature and is starting to uncover ways to design it out of society. The term resource is being used much more universally now to describe waste which is a positive step that demonstrates an awareness that waste is a material that holds value.
The way to unlock its value is to work towards a circular economy which is a regenerative system that optimises the resources we use to keep them in a productive loop for as long as possible, avoiding waste from being generated entirely.
We have developed a tool that can show a business where it is tracking against both zero waste to landfill and zero waste targets. It also provides an indication of the likely temperature rise contribution being made.
To become zero waste, all waste materials you create need to be diverted from landfill. Discover how Reconomy can help your business get started.
More needs to be done to make effective change, and Reconomy can work with businesses to help you make that next step.
