The Circularity Gap Report: Our World is Only 9% Circular | #circulareconomy

Tierr@_de_N@die: A well grounded metric is a powerful tool to show where we are globally in terms of circular economy and also to choose the right strategies to make the things go forward in the right direction.

Our world economy is only 9.1% circular, leaving a massive ‘Circularity Gap’. This alarming statistic is the main output of this first Circularity Gap Report, in which we launch a metric for the circular state of the planet. Taking the United Nations’ Emissions Gap Report as inspiration, the Circularity Gap Report provides a framework and fact-base to measure and monitor progress in bridging the gap, year on year. Being able to track and target performance via the Global Circularity Metric will help us engage in uniform goal-setting and guide future action in the most impactful way.
