Reuse Is The Best Way To Curb Climate Change
Jan 28, 2019

     A study by the Circle Economy Institute shows that in order to effectively curb global climate change, humans must recycle billions of tons of materials every year. At present, humans consume nearly 93 billion tons of raw materials, including minerals, metals, fossil fuels and biomass, and only 1/10 of them can be recycled. The director of the institute, Harald Friedl, believes that the effective use of these resources can achieve the 2015 Paris Agreement in advance to keep the global temperature increase at 2 °C higher than before industrialization (ideally below 1.5 °C). The goal. Studies have shown that, excluding land use and forestry, 62% of insulation emissions are in the mining, processing and manufacturing processes. In response to climate change, the measures taken by government departments so far mainly include the use of renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, and stopping deforestation. The United Nations estimates that the world’s material consumption has tripled since the 1970s, and if no action is taken, it will double again by 2050. Friede believes that in order to reduce waste emissions, recycling of materials should be carried out. Although it is somewhat difficult to achieve recycling, including changing production and consumption habits, it is feasible for the government to take appropriate measures. Asia's fast-growing economy and urbanization have led to a significant increase in investment in construction and infrastructure, providing an opportunity to promote a circular economy. The report recommends that Europe promote the maximum use of existing buildings, including extending the life of buildings, improving energy efficiency, and finding new uses. The report proposes three overall strategies for achieving a circular economy. The first is to maximize the use, such as car sharing or extended service life. This is followed by recycling and reducing waste emissions, such as the use of natural low-carbon materials in buildings, such as the use of bamboo or wood instead of cement. The third is that the government should formulate tax and expenditure plans to encourage circular economy, increase waste discharge taxes, and eliminate fiscal and taxation policies that stimulate natural resources such as excessive use of fossil fuels.
