#EUCircularTalks: Switching to the circular economy to tackle carbon emissions

The IPCC’s recent report outlined how rapidly the world is heating up due to human activity and the role that our carbon dioxide emissions are playing in that rise. Paris Agreement-aligned targets require emissions to be cut by half by 2030 and to reach net zero by 2050. During the UN high-level meeting Stockholm +50, governments from around the world are meeting to commemorate the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Environment and celebrate 50 years of global environmental action.

This talk is an associated event of Stockholm +50 and World Environment Day (WED). It will discuss the EU's role in reducing carbon emissions and discuss the policy and legislative changes needed in order to do so.
