Environmental Defense Fund and Deloitte

Today’s global economy consumes 100 billion tons of materials, of which only 7.2 billion tons come from secondary materials – an unsustainable, polluting model. Learn how to incorporate circularity within your company to generate value and preserve resources. What’s more, use our circular economy framework and associated value lever map to identify, prioritize, and implement specific concepts that meet your business, environmental, and social goals.

‘Circularity’ — the concept of using and wasting less — can have many business benefits. When done well, circularity can help businesses benefit financially from reduced resource consumption, reduced waste disposal costs, new revenue streams and more, all while reducing emissions, using less, and improving the livelihoods of impacted communities.
