Assessing Closed Loop Fund’s Investment in Recycling Infrastructure and Circular Economy
December 12, 2016
The Closed Loop Fund was created to strengthen recycling infrastructure and ensure that packaging is kept out of landfills. Delivering on this intent means taking a macro, systems-level view on a variety of relevant metrics. In 2016, the Closed Loop Fund established a measurement framework that cuts across stakeholders and life stages of packaging to understand the economic, social and environmental impacts of its investments, how the system is changing so far, and what potential there is for it to change further in the near future. This session will unveil the organization’s first impact report, highlighting progress to date and key insights concerning the entire ecosystem of stakeholders engaged in innovating toward a circular economy. The results may surprise you!
