Our strategic plan

The circular economy is here, and we need to get ready. Businesses and governments are leading the way with big changes that will make our planet more sustainable and resilient.

Companies are designing out waste by making products that last and can be repaired. Next-generation infrastructure and services are allowing people to generate energy and water locally, reducing costs and creating an abundance of sustainable resources that can be shared. People are also sharing mobility saving money and carbon.
