The global economy is only 8.6% circular, down from 9.1% two years ago.
That's the warning from the Circularity Gap Reporting Initiative, which says the global circularity gap widening is being driven by high rates of resource extraction, ongoing stock build-up, plus, low levels of end-of-use processing and recycling.
The report suggests these trends are deeply embedded within what it calls the "take-make-waste" tradition of the linear economy and says "transformative and correctional" solutions are urgently required to drive change.
