Circularity Gap Report Northern Ireland

August 3, 2022
Circularity Gap Report, Nations

Northern Ireland is 7.9% circular: more than 90% of the country's material use stems from virgin sources. At 16.6 tonnes per capita, the material footprint far surpasses the global average. This overconsumption exhausts our planet's vital ecosystems and threatens our quality of life. Our Circularity Gap Report Northern Ireland, however, finds that the country has the power to transform its economy: by doubling its circularity, it can halve the resources needed to fulfil its residents' needs and wants, opening up avenues to slash emissions and reach its net-zero goals.
