This publication focuses on one of the most challenging questions in the coming decennia: how can we feed, house, clothe and transport two billion more people in the 20 - 30 years ahead within the ecological limits of our planet? Today, in Europe, we are consuming the equivalent of 2.8 planets’ worth of natural resources, yet we only have one planet. Business as usual is not an option. Innovative solutions and adequate measures to mitigate the impact of a growing demand for natural resources are more needed than ever.

This sense of urgency has brought ACE, the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment; Unilever, one of the world’s most important suppliers of Food, Home and Personal Care products;
and WWF, the Global Conservation organisation, together for a debate during this year’s edition of the Green Week dedicated to Circular Economy, Resource Efficiency & Waste that took place in June in Brussels. The core question: how to make sustainable sourcing happen.
