World's waste to grow to 3.4 billion tonnes, fuelled by a linear economy

· circular economy,SDGs,sustainability,waste,ESG

The world's waste is expected to grow from 2 billion tonnes in 2016 to 3.4 billion tonnes in 2050, fuelled by a linear economy where we make, use and throw out products with little regard for future use.

A circular economy is about redesigning products and processes so that goods can be used longer, repurposed or recycled economically to reduce waste.

"The circular economy is a major transformational force that will last decades ... investors are increasingly considering sustainability factors when making investment decisions. Those that fail to act will find themselves headed for the economic scrapyard." Blackrock, Sep 2019
