Biobased: Can biomaterials become the building blocks for the 21st century?
The session will focus on the shift towards circular, bio-based, renewable materials and construction methods for a sustainable future, with a focus on bio-based and biomaterials. This transition away from current linear, extractive, and toxic construction practices has the potential to dramatically reduce both the need for natural resources and the carbon footprint of urban growth, and is critical to deliver on the Glasgow Climate Pact.
The aim of this event is to raise awareness of the transformational socio-economic and environmental impacts that an accelerated transition to a bio-based, circular material economy could have, particularly for the Global South. The event will also mark the launch of a new report published by Yale University entitled “Biomaterials Supporting the Transition to a Circular Built Environment in the Global South” to which UNEP contributed.
