Climate Change Mitigation Through the Circular Economy

April 15, 2021

Commissioned by the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP), which advises the Global Environment Facility (GEF), Circle Economy and Shifting Paradigms have researched how the circular economy can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in low- and middle-income countries. 

This report uncovers the range of socio-economic and environmental co-benefits that circular mitigation interventions can bring to GEF countries of operation. It supports strategic advice by the STAP to the GEF and its implementing partners and helps carve out a role for these bodies in accelerating the transition to a low-carbon circular economy. As our Circularity Gap Report 2021 reported, circular economy strategies have the potential to slash global greenhouse gas emissions by 39%, emphasising the urgency for a circular economy approach.   

The findings of this report will be highly relevant to the development of future GEF projects and programmes across its different focal areas.
