Two of the biggest barriers to sustainability rest in the current linear “take-make-dispose” economic model and our outdated global energy system. Our projects in the Energy and Circular Economy program aim to address these issues by bringing business together to scale up low-carbon and efficiency solutions. We believe that the circular economy is a key lever in transitioning to the low-carbon economy – and that by unleashing circular innovation, we can help fulfill the Paris Agreement and the SDGs.
Combating climate change and transforming the energy system are core challenges on the path to a sustainable future. Our Climate and Energy work facilitates cutting-edge climate and energy solutions as we work with business, government and society to address critical climate and industry issues, share best practices and build a sustainable world.
