The paper discusses the implementation challenges of approaches with zero carbon emissions and zero waste. Based on the analysis of world statistics of energy sources, environmental policies and plans in the field of decarbonisation and application of renewable energy, the authors highlight challenges and barriers which can be faced during implementation of such plans in the indicated time horizon. Various levels of readiness of countries and global energy players to reduce fossil fuels in energy mix are listed among the main barriers. The paper shows other ways of energy saving, focusing at implementation of circular economy. Based on the results of the Czech Republic experience in the field of circular economy it is identified, that it is slowly embracing the zero waste approach. However, awareness of people and practical applications of new concept of zero waste circular economy are low in business and among the young generation. The practical implication of findings and some recommendations to environmental education and governments are introduced.
