This is not just about investing in perfectly circular companies or divesting from extractive ones, but about engaging with and encouraging companies in every industry to make the transition.
The American Forests Organization states that trees are a natural "carbon sink" - they pull carbon dioxide from the air and convert it into food. "The carbon from the CO2 becomes part of the plant and is stored as wood," the organization writes. "Eventually, when the plant or tree dies, the carbon it has been storing is released into the atmosphere." This makes deforestation one of the biggest causes of carbon dioxide emission.
