70% of greenhouse gas emissions are linked to material handling and use.

If we transform our global economy to one where waste and pollution are eliminated, products and materials are reused at the highest possible value and nature is regenerated, we can:

• Reduce material use by 28%

• Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 39%

What the circular economy can do for cities:

green-house
