GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Circular Economy as a Key Instrument for Reducing Climate Change

Title:
The Circular Economy as a Key Instrument for Reducing Climate Change

Abstract:
Proper waste management strategies can achieve a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Increased recycling of 2/3 of municipal solid waste can reduce the annual global emissions by 6%. These potential environmental gains emerge from research by the Dutch research institute CE Delft commissioned by the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging (KIDV). The study shows that the circular economy can in many cases also be seen as an effective climate strategy. In a circular economy there is no such thing as waste, only renewable energy is used and resource use is optimised. The focus is on reduce, reuse and recycle as waste management strategies.
