Four Industry leaders share what it takes to go circular

Shifting the economy toward circularity requires major changes to business models, supply chains, B2B and B2C consumer behavior

The Earth provides us with all the primary materials necessary to produce everything we necessitate, nevertheless, the cost is borne out not only in landfills, but also through emissions, as our consumption fuels the climate emergency.

Yet, companies have been optimizing for the linear economy for over 200 years. Shifting the economy toward circularity requires major changes to business and operating models, supply chains, and B2B and B2C consumer behavior. This level of disruption to business as usual often harms those most vulnerable, and circular solutions must contribute to a just, inclusive future

Ahead of the 2021 Sustainable Development Impact Summit, we interviewed top executives, from four different sectors, prioritizing the circular economy about their lessons learned and their advice on where to start, what to avoid and how to build momentum to jumpstart a company’s circular transition. These small steps can have huge short-term impacts and set the path toward more systemic changes in the future.
