UN Environment signs circular deal

The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is stepping up its efforts to support the circular economy.

It announced this week at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, that it will be collaborating more closely with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in a deal that will ‘focus their joint efforts on stimulating public-private sector engagement with circular economy solutions’.

“An outdated, take-make-dispose linear economy is the root cause of some of today’s most challenging problems. The circular economy provides a framework to design an economy that is restorative and regenerative, and creates benefits for society and the environment. I am delighted to work with UN Environment to further our shared goals of scaling up and accelerating this systemic shift at a global level,” said Dame Ellen MacArthur – Founder, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in a statement.
