A new study published by the European Forest Institute calls for collective action to put nature at the heart of the economy and set the world on a sustainable path. The 10-point Action Plan for a Circular Bioeconomy of Wellbeing is written by a multidisciplinary team of over 25 authors led by EFI Director Marc Palahí. The study brings together the latest scientific insights and breakthrough technologies to offer a solution to current global challenges.

“Global challenges like climate change, and biodiversity loss, coupled with a growing and highly urbanised population call for new ways of producing and consuming within our planetary boundaries”, says co-author Mari Pantsar, Director of Carbon-neutral circular economy at Sitra. “We need a transition to a circular economy.”

The action plan forms the framework for the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance established by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accelerate the transition towards a Circular Bioeconomy. The publication also features a foreword by His Royal Highness.
