Financing and Measuring the Circular Economy - Capturing the Opportunity
Static Preview

In this session you will hear about financing and measuring the circular economy: how it helps deliver on climate and other ESG goals, while being a source of better and new growth; how the circular economy financing market has grown steeply across asset classes over the last two years; and how circularity performance can be measured to inform decision making by both business leaders and financiers.

Climate Justice: Radioactive And Toxic Waste, Racism, And Rising Oceans
Static Preview

At the recent Global Training in July 2020, former Vice President Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project continued their call to prioritize and center the environmental justice work of communities of color and indigenous communities. In this spirit, we invite you to learn about and engage with Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice's "We Can't Breathe" campaign in San Francisco's Bayview and Hunters Point (BVHP) neighborhoods, a low-income community of color (33.7 percent African American, 30.7 percent Asian, and 24.9 percent Latinx per the 2010 Census) where residents suffer from high rates of asthma and cancer and where radioactive waste and toxic contamination at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Superfund site and multiple other contaminated sites are located.

As one of the lowest-lying points in San Francisco, BVHP will also be first impacted by rising oceans, which have already risen by almost 8 inches as of 2016 and which threaten to create flooding of hazardous and radioactive waste of neighborhoods, transportation infrastructure, and the entire San Francisco Bay, while several hundred new luxury homes have been built next to and possibly on top of radioactive contamination, and 10,000 more homes are planned at the contaminated Shipyard Superfund Site where critics complain that radioactive and toxic cleanup has been marred by fraud and lax standards. Speakers will also discuss the August 25 Car Caravan Protest to San Francisco City Hall for the Bayview Hunters Point Environmental Justice "We Can't Breathe" Campaign.

To stop plastic pollution we need a circular economy for plastic
Static Preview

In July 2020, The Pew Charitable Trusts and SYSTEMIQ released Breaking the Plastic Wave: A Comprehensive Assessment of Pathways Towards Stopping Ocean Plastic Pollution, one of the most analytically robust studies ever produced on ocean plastics. Thought partners were the University of Oxford, University of Leeds, Common Seas, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Breaking the Plastic Wave shows that by 2040, if we fail to act, the volume of plastic on the market will double, the annual volume of plastic entering the ocean will almost triple, and ocean plastic stocks will quadruple. This is in line with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's 2016 analysis, which revealed that in 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.


The study also confirms that a circular economy for plastic is the only way to address plastic waste and pollution at the source. This is a vision that already unites 850+ organisations through the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and the Plastics Pact network.

Circular Economy in Sports with Seb Egerton-read
Static Preview

Cutting edge circular economy innovation is cropping up everywhere. Watch this broadcast to find out how circular economy thinking is infiltrating everything from the design of mountain jackets to the running of events like the London Marathon and Nordic World Ski event.

Join the session to hear three stories:
- Nani Pajunen, leading circular economy specialist at Sitra - a Finnish-based sustainable well-being fund. She’ll be talking about the organisation’s presence at the recent Nordic World Ski event.
- Pierre Paslier, co-founder of Notpla, an edible and soluble membrane that can hold water as a replacement for plastic.(OOHOs). He’ll be showcasing the product and describing how it found its sweet spot at the London Marathon.
- Elisabetta Baronio, sustainability co-ordinator at VF Corporation. She’ll be showcasing Napapijri’s Infinity jacket, which is 100% recyclable, made using exclusively Nylon 6 and designed for disassembly.

What can the sports industry as a whole learn from these innovations? We’ll discuss that and much more.

The true cost of Amazon by Our Changing Climate
Static Preview

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I take on Amazon. Specifically, I look at how Amazon prime shipping and delivery services impact the environment and the workers who rush to fulfill such tight deadlines. Looking at shipping services like Amazon Flex and investigating the conditions in Amazon warehouses I try to answer the question of what does Amazon really cost? In short, Amazon's consistent need to speed to fulfill prime one-day and two-day ship orders means high environmental impacts and crushing loads on workers both in the warehouse and out for delivery. So, when you purchase an Amazon product the burden of that cheap price tag lands on workers and the environment.

In this breathtaking talk, he shows how he meticulously organizes and reuses plastic waste from around the world that washes up on the Caribbean coast of Mexico -- everything from water bottles to prosthetic legs -- to create vivid, environmental artworks that may leave you mesmerized and shocked.

The Solution to Plastic Pollution? by Max Wilbert

How can we stop the problem of plastic pollution? Recycling? Bioplastics? Compostable straws? No. We need to go to the root of the problem, and cut off the production of new plastic. That's the only way.

Doing Our Part to Curb Plastic Waste in Pakistan
Static Preview

On August 14 this year (2019 the Government of Pakistan celebrated two independence days: one commemorating the nation's freedom for 72 years. The other? Freedom from single-use plastic bags. Pakistan has joined 128 countries in the fight against plastic pollution, and it started with Islamabad's pilot project banning the use of plastic bags in the capital city. Moving towards environmental sustainability is one of the World Bank’s key commitments to the Government of Pakistan and to ourselves, and so we decided to walk the talk. For the past year, the World Bank Islamabad campus has been free of single-use plastic.
