Circular Economy And Environmental Priorities for Business

Published: 05/06/2017

Companies start implementing the circular economy to improve the bottom line, mitigate risks in the supply chain and strengthen competitive advantage. Despite some companies already capitalizing on these business drivers, most find it difficult to identify and implement circular strategies and viable business cases.

With this report, Ecofys, a Navigant company, and WBCSD help companies to identify priorities for the circular economy from the environmental point of view, providing insight into the biggest circular economy opportunities for specific value chains.

The experts provide global material flows and related carbon, water and land footprints for eight key materials for circular economy, as well as an inventory of available circular economy measures that can be applied to mitigate the impacts.

This work was a vital contribution to WBCSD’s CEO Guide to Circular Economy. Find additional insights at: wbcsd.org
