Taking action

The way we live today is damaging our planet

We’ve seen rising greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, biodiversity loss, and pollution of our planet. Some of the changes are already irreversible.

The world currently uses 1.7 planets’ worth of resources every year. So, the challenge is how do we raise the global population out of poverty while reducing our demand on resources to a level that one planet can sustain?

Our focus areas are food and drink, plastic packaging, clothing and textiles, and collections and reprocessing.

By tackling these sectors, we can move demand towards levels that could sustainably be met by the planet. Crucially, it also has the potential to satisfy the needs of growing world population without compromising future generations to meet their needs.
