The limits of the planet: which have already been exceeded
Climate change, biodiversity, exploitation in land use. These are three out of nine “planetary boundaries” we have already breached. Such limits were identified in 2009 by the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University’s resilience and sustainability science research center.
Planetary boundaries set out no-return thresholds beyond which life on the planet may become unsustainable, even impossible for humans. The underlying research has involved dozens of scientists since 2009 making the model a benchmark for sustainable development and environmental protection, proving how balance on our planet is based on the mutually connected nature of many inputs.
With its People and Nature Commitment, Fedrigoni aims at a tangible commitment towards such issues. We talk about this in our Bit on Sustainability.
