CIRCULAR ECONOMY &

SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION

“Using less of the Earth’s resources more efficiently and productively in a circular economy [is a] defining feature of the emerging economic paradigm.” 

Jeremy Rifkin¹

THE Challenge

Our traditional ‘take-make-waste’ consumption model is placing unprecedented strain on our planet’s resources.

 

Left unchecked, we are heading towards catastrophic climate change and ecosystem damage.

THE Solution

Sustainable consumption and the circular economy offer us the chance to revolutionise our resource use.

 

By minimising raw materials,  optimising product lifespan, and re-using or recycling at the end of a product's life, we can help eliminate almost half of the necessary global carbon dioxide emissions reductions by 2050,⁹ as well as ensuring resources are available for future generations.

 

The market opportunity

Sustainable consumption and the circular economy offer a $2 trillion investment opportunity, combining groundbreaking impact with attractive financial returns.
