Environmental Defense Fund and Trinomics

The circular economy is a vital tool for climate mitigation and reaching net-zero goals. The mitigation potential of circular actions varies across sectors, with building, transport, and agriculture leading the way. Adopting circular actions can be highly cost-effective for businesses, offering opportunities to save costs, create new revenue streams, and strengthen supply chain resilience.

Circularity and the circular economy is increasingly viewed by governments and businesses as a means to mitigate the negative impacts of the linear economy.
