repair and reuse in the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report*
There's a good amount of mentions of repair and reuse in the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report.
There's a whole chapter on 'demand-side' solutions, including consumption patterns.
This implies that we could potentially save gigatonnes of CO2 through behavioural change (like community repair events) and policies (like the Right to Repair) that prioritise consuming less and (re)using what we already have for longer. And while small compared to changing what we eat, that’s still a massive impact in absolute terms.
What does the IPCC report say about repair & reuse? - Right to repair: policy…
