The earth and everything that's in it - sustainability and circularity in law
Vol. 6 - Iss. 4 pp. 50–53
During the past decade, a light has been focused on the excessive consumption of humankind and the harm that it wreaks across the earth, the sea that surrounds it, and the space above. International treaties, such as the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the European Strategy on Plastics 2018, the European Green Deal 2019, the Circular Economy Action Plan 2020, the Climate Change Act 2021, and the Environment Act all provide comprehensive frameworks that seek to turn back the clock, cool the planet, restore habitats, and consider circularity and sustainability as keystones in all law.
