UN Environment recently released a report on the need for our economy to move from a ‘take, make, waste’ model to a circular one. And we couldn’t agree with them more.
They expect that the “Transition to a circular economy will create 100,000 jobs and generate more than $1 trillion for the economy” among many other benefits for our businesses and planet.
Some of the suggestions the report puts forward for the private sector are:
Reuse, repair, recycle, regenerate
Develop innovative low-carbon production methods and smart product design
Replace fossil-based, scarce and non-sustainable raw material with sustainable, available and renewable raw material
Procure with care and buy sustainable goods
Decrease demand for raw material by increasing efficiency of raw material use in supply chain
If you have not had a chance to view the report yet we recommend giving it a look.
Globechain is proud to support this mission of moving towards a circular economy by providing a way to reuse more and dispose of less. This keeps more tonnage out of landfill and reduces the need for raw resources.
