ACMF Circular Economy
Supporting your circular economy journey through strategy and business transformation
A system reset to the business landscape is in the horizon. Disruptive change is accelerating as the world comes to terms with the effects of climate change, technological revolution, societal expectations and the shock of global pandemics.
Businesses are no longer expected to sit on the side benches of these matters. Large global players are already bringing leadership to these expectations and regulatory action is brewing.
This is a defining period for businesses, large and small. It will separate those who thrive from those who disappear. So what can you do to be on the right side of the divide?
Circular economy is the game changer.
for new growth
The circular economy represents a
$4.5 trillion global growth opportunity by 2030. Private equity funds with circular economy focus grew 6 folds in first eight months of 2020 amounting to $2 billion assets managed.
A disruption to
Changing needs of big businesses on suppliers and vendors for circularity.
Growing regulatory and market pressure by large markets such as Europe and China to meet climate ambitions and sustainable consumption and production.
A chance to build back better for people and planet
Address the climate crisis by tackling 45% of global carbon emissions from products and food that is often overlooked. Build a resilient future in post-pandemic recovery while restoring and regenerating nature through circular principles.
What is the Circular Economy?
The circular economy is a restorative and regenerative economic model by design. It is about designing out waste, keeping products and materials in use for as long as possible at their highest value, and regenerating natural ecosystems. It is a profound shift away from the 'take-make-dispose' model of today's linear economy.
Every second, one garbage truck of textiles are landfilled or burned globally. Every year, 95% or $80-120 billion worth of plastic packaging material value is lost to the economy and 8 million tonnes of plastic leak into our oceans. Each year, the linear nature of modern food production results in $5.7 trillion lost of value globally. The linear economy is full of wasted opportunities.
Circular economy is about 'doing more good' instead of just 'doing less harm'. It is a systemic change that is changing the business ecosystem for good and its adoption is gaining momentum.
How will it benefit business?
Through adopting circular principles, your business could:
create additional revenue from existing materials and assets
capture value through innovation of new products and services
reduce operating costs
be ahead of the regulatory curve
foster stronger relationships with customers and employees
differentiate from competition
identify opportunities for deeper value chain relationships
attract more investment
Circular Economy is already here. Are you?
Navigating the rapidly developing ecosystem of circular economy can be confusing and intimidating especially when times are tough. Getting your strategy right and moving into the position in time to take advantage of this wave will determine who survives the change and who does not.
