Environment and Climate Change

Climate change encompasses not only rising average temperatures but also extreme weather events, shifting wildlife populations and habitats, rising seas, and a range of other impacts. All of these changes are emerging as humans continue to add heat-trapping greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Poor and developing countries, particularly least developed countries, will be among those most adversely affected and least able to cope with the anticipated shocks to their social, economic and natural systems. Recycling, however, has been shown to save over 700 million tonnes in CO2 emissions every year, according to a study conducted by the Bureau of International Recycling. Encouraging recycling, reusing and reducing our waste, we can ensure a better recycling culture and protect our planet.
