Let’s close the gap on circularity

By adopting a circular approach to resource management, we can unlock new economic opportunities. Let’s co-create a new era of circularity.

Creating a new era of circularity to unlock new economic opportunities

Every year, global resources are being depleted faster than the year before. This results in limited or scarce resources and a global abundance of waste. By fundamentally re-thinking how we produce, consume, process and re-use our resources, we can turn the tide and generate new economic opportunities.
To close the gap, we must enable a new paradigm of low-carbon and recycled building materials. We must increase our global capacity for treating and re-using both water and waste. And we must implement smart low-carbon solutions for energy and heating. Let’s co-create a new era of circularity and resource management.

Resource management challenges

  • : 50%
    of the world’s extracted raw materials go into the built environment (BBC, 2021)
  • : 2/3
    of the world’s population may face water shortages by 2025 (WWF, 2022)
  • : 75%
    of all energy produced by humanity is squandered as heat waste (Yale, 2018)
