Factor10 is WBCSD’s Circular Economy project. It brings companies together to reinvent how business finds, uses and disposes of the materials that make up global trade. It’s a platform that will help to identify and remove the barriers that exist and create scalable solutions that businesses all around the world can use.
By collaborating on solutions that go beyond business as usual, Factor10 will deliver high-impact, large-scale results where resources are used wisely, processes create the greatest possible value, and nothing is wasted.
In order to reach Vision 2050 in which not a particle of waste exists, eco-efficiency of materials must improve by a factor of 10. This target was previously referenced by the Factor10 Institute in 1994 when they called for the ten-fold improvement in resource efficiency.
