Exploring the Circularity Gap Report with Circle Economy

25 March 2021

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


What is the event about?

In January this year, Circle Economy launched the 2021 edition of their Circularity Gap Report which has found that circular economy strategies can cut global carbon emissions by 39%.

The 22.8 billion tonnes (Gt) of annual emissions associated with creating new products from virgin materials can be eliminated by applying circular strategies that drastically reduce the amount of minerals, fossil fuels, metals and biomass consumed by the world’s economy.

The report also offers strategies tailored to countries at different levels of development as they plan to stimulate economic recovery from the Covid pandemic and strengthen their climate commitments ahead of the COP26 UN climate summit in November.

In this webinar, we’ll be joined by Matthew Fraser from Circle Economy to share insights from the Gap Report and explore what this means for business.
