The World Is Only 9% Circular. We Need To Act.

According to the 2021 Circularity Gap Report, the world is now only 8.6% circular.

Since the first Circularity Gap Report in 2018, the problems of a linear economy, like greenhouse gas emissions and increasing resource extraction, persist and continue to impact the global economy.

The concept of a ‘circular economy’ can be the paradigm shift so desperately needed now.

Adding circular economy solutions to the NDC’s allows us to keep global temperature rise well below 2-degrees.

This shift will require four key actions:

  • Translating global trends into national, regional, and commercial pathways
  • Developing decision metrics and a measurement framework
  • Facilitating peer-to-peer learning and knowledge transfer
  • Building a diverse and inclusive global coalition for action

How to get started
We support businesses to reduce their cost intensity with our Sustainable Cost Reduction (SCORE) Service. Let’s start the paradigm shift together.
