How the circular economy can help to tackle biodiversity loss The Circular Economy Show

    • Society & Culture

More than 90% of biodiversity loss is due to the extraction and processing of natural resources. Can a shift to the circular economy help to reverse biodiversity loss altogether?

In this episode, we’re joined by The Nature Conservancy’s Robert Jones to discuss the potential role of restorative aquaculture can play in rebuilding the health of our oceans.

We’ll hear how aquaculture is effectively the regenerative agriculture of our oceans, with the potential to eliminate greenhouse gases and help to restore ocean biodiversity.

It also has the potential to be a long-term source of healthy food, and can help create jobs in vulnerable fishing communities around the world.

We’ll also hear from Soukeyna Gueye, lead author of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s latest biodiversity report, The Nature Imperative: How the circular economy tackles biodiversity loss, to explore how the way we extract and process resources can impact biodiversity.
