Unsustainable production and consumption systems powered by relentless extraction of natural resources have been driving the inter-linked planetary crises of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.
Today, resource extraction and processing are responsible for over 80% of biodiversity loss and water stress, and for 50% of carbon emissions globally. And global material resource use is expected to more than double from 2015 to 2050.
Through the shared vision and effective collaboration of all societal stakeholders, we can counteract these negative impacts and scale up solutions for an efficient and sustainable use of resources.
Our publication in collaboration with UNEP to respond to the electronics sector's need for more guidance in building resilient, competitive and sustainable business models.
