Packaging plastics in the circular economy

Packaging plastics offer an almost infinite range of options for manufacturers in terms of function and design. Their durability and resistance to degradation means that if they ‘leak’ into the environment, they stay there. Leakage has been increasing rapidly and its detrimental impact, especially on the marine environment, has attracted wide public and political concern.

The first and last mile — the key to sustainable urban transport

The growing use of electric scooters and ride-hailing services is transforming how we move in urban centres — but walking, cycling and public transport remain the best way to improve sustainable mobility in cities, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report published today. A separate EEA briefing on the environmental and climate impacts of transport finds that emissions of greenhouse gases from transport continue to increase, as demand for mobility across Europe keeps growing.

The European environment — state and outlook 2020

Europe will not achieve its 2030 goals without urgent action during the next 10 years to address the alarming rate of biodiversity loss, increasing impacts of climate change and the overconsumption of natural resources. The European Environment Agency’s (EEA) latest ‘State of the Environment’ report states that Europe faces environmental challenges of unprecedented scale and urgency. The report says, however, there is reason for hope, amid increased public awareness of the need to shift to a sustainable future, technological innovations, growing community initiatives and stepped up EU action like the European Green Deal.

WBGU Gutachten: Unsere gemeinsame digitale Zukunft

Die Digitalisierung geht mit immer weiter steigenden Energie- und Ressourcenverbräuchen sowie globalen Produktions- und Konsummustern einher, die die Ökosysteme noch massiver belasten. Die technischen Innovationsschübe übersetzen sich nicht automatisch in Nachhaltigkeitstransformationen, sondern müssen eng mit Nachhaltigkeitsleitbildern und -politiken gekoppelt werden.

Decarbonisation of transport: options and challenges

This EASAC report reviews options for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from European transport. It argues for stronger policies to bridge the gap between the GHG emission reductions that will be delivered by current policies and the levels needed to limit global warming to less than 2°C or even 1.5°C (Paris Agreement).
