Sitra study: Circular solutions are key to halting biodiversity loss
According to Sitra’s study, circular economy interventions in four key sectors can halt and reverse global biodiversity loss to the same levels as in the year 2000 by 2035.
This study is the first to quantify the role a circular economy can play in tackling global biodiversity loss, targeting the four sectors with the largest impacts: food and agriculture, construction, textiles and forestry. According to the study, circular interventions in the food and agriculture sector can have the largest positive impact. By shifting to alternative proteins and regenerative agriculture, and by reducing food waste by half, biodiversity loss could be halted by 2035.
