Towards the Circular Economy Vol. 3: Accelerating the scale-up across global supply chains

First published on

Business leaders and governments both acknowledge that continued wealth generation requires a new industrial model less dependent on primary energy and materials inputs.

Towards the Circular Economy vol.3: accelerating the scale-up across global supply chains, is a collaboration between the World Economic Forum, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and McKinsey & Company. The report aims to reconcile the goal of scaling a circular model with the reality of a global economy and complex multi-tier supply chains. It finds that over USD 1 trillion a year could be generated by 2025 for the global economy - and 100,000 new jobs created for the next five years if companies focused on encouraging the build-up of circular supply chains to increase the rate of recycling, reuse, and remanufacture.
