Supporting port professionals, businesses and communities in the transition to a Circular and Low Carbon Economy
Completing the picture
Until now, we have tackled climate change primarily by switching to renewable energy. We are decarbonising at speed, partly to become more self-sufficient in an ever changing global system.
We need to be reminded that the energy transition will only solve half of the climate problem. It’s like we’ve only read half the book, or seen half the movie.
So what completes the picture? Changing the way we use materials and manage land. This is where circularity comes in.
It is more than energy. It is about flipping our current take-make-waste economic model on its head to one where we eliminate, circulate and regenerate.
