Stefan Ranstrand has been the boss of Norwegian -based TOMRA since 2009. Here he presents a vision of how his company may progress in the so-called circular economy. We can see the result in the US and Europe quite soon, if his resource revolution technologies continue to be successful.

Sustaining us to the Summit!

Sustaining us to the Summit!

It is urgent that we properly approach the global warming problems worldwide. To invest sensibly in low-carbon industry, using the power of our pensions and observe how efficiently government can or cannot carry out the necessary climate change reversals is critical. Meetings such as this Economist-inspired Summit need to propagate concern and action, but are we still just talking instead of doing?

The impact of any agricultural activity on our carbon emissions is small compared to heavy industry. The attempts that have already been made, up to 2012, are admirable and will reward farmer and community alike with many environmental and even some energy benefits - and of course the porkers.
