How we are meeting the challenge
We are driving business solutions and initiatives that integrate the circular economy principles of life-cycle thinking and resource optimization. Our projects mobilize companies in their journey towards the circular economy.
Metrics & Measurement
In recent years, the circular economy has increasingly appeared as the new model to pursue sustainable economic growth. However, for companies and governments to be able to assess their circular performance, they need consistent measurement processes and metrics.
Sector Deep Dives
Demand for resources has grown exponentially over the last few decades. Acknowledging resource limits that address all sectors, business must increasingly find new opportunities for creating stakeholder value. The circular economy presents each sector with different opportunities for enhancing competitiveness, accelerating growth and mitigating risk.
Policy & Engagement
Over the last 40 years, annual extraction of materials has more than tripled. As the population grows and more consumers enter the middle class, the total demand for resources is expected to reach 130 billion tons by 2050, up from 50 billion in 2014. That’s an overuse of the Earth’s total capacity by more than 400%.
To transition from a linear to a circular economy, local and national governments need to create a regulatory environment that effectively promotes and accelerates circular activities in the private sector.
