During two weeks in November, the annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) will take place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. The environmental company Ragn-Sells will, as a part of Business Sweden’s delegation, participate to share knowledge and showcase examples of how circular material flows are a key contributor for meeting the targets set in the Paris Agreement.
– We have an amazing opportunity to create a sustainable future by transitioning to a society based on circular principles keeping critical resources in the loop instead of throwing them away. This is what we at Ragn-Sells, together with our partners, are going to showcase at COP27, says Pär Larshans, Director of Sustainability at Ragn-Sells.
Today, half of the world’s emissions are caused by the production of common goods such as food, clothing, cars, etc, according to the UN. This is largely a consequence of raw materials being mined, used, and then thrown away, rather than being recovered and used over and over again.
– The climate simply needs more circularity to conquer climate change. Therefore, Ragn-Sells is committed to continuing to develop and build solutions that detoxify resources and bring them back into the production cycle again. This year at COP we will have a special focus on how to produce the food the world needs within the limitation of the planetary boundaries by using circular solutions, says Pär Larshans.
