The Circularity Gap Report: An Analysis of the Circular State of the Global Economy

Our world is only 9.1 percent circular, leaving a mass “circularity gap.” This statistic is the main output of the first Circularity Gap Report, in which Circle Economy shares a new metric for the circular state of the planet. The report provides a framework and fact base to measure and monitor progress in bridging the gap, year on year.

Endorsed by leading representatives from governments, cities, think tanks and businesses, the report highlights UN Environment statistics showing that a fully circular economy would both reduce global natural resource use by 28 percent and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 72 percent, thereby supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement
