Ask the Experts Session 1: Enabling Biodiversity to Thrive through Effective Circular Carbon Economy
Tuesday, 22 February 2022 | 1400–1530 | Meeting Room 1
Circular Carbon Economy (CCE) has gained traction in the industry as a pathway to deliver resource efficiency. While CCE promotes restoration of resources; it is not entirely clear how its approach could restore natural resources.
Preserving natural capital ensures a sustainable foundation for a circular economy. At the same time, a circular economy contributes to maintaining natural capital by reducing the environmental burden resulting from the use and depletion of natural resources. This interrelationships between the environment and the economy can help uncover trade-offs and synergies to identify ways to lower environmental pressures, while at the same time continuing to manage the economy effectively. In exemplary form the carbon circular economy will not only reduce the burden but will also integrate regenerative practices, so its impact is net positive.
This session will provide an opportunity to embrace new knowledge confidently and debate a viable roadmap to fully adopting CCE practices in our industry and value chain.
