Circularity Gap Report, Cities

Circular Economy strategies can halve Quebec’s yearly resource consumption of 271 million tonnes and double its circularity rate of 3.5%

The first regional Circularity Gap Report published in partnership with RECYC-QUÉBEC presents six scenarios to narrow Quebec's Circularity Gap. 

While the world’s circularity sits at 8.6%, the Canadian province of Quebec trails behind—cycling just 3.5% of the materials it consumes. This is according to our new Circularity Gap Report Quebec, which deep dives into the intricacies of the province’s economy—pinpointing opportunities to jump start its own circular journey. The report presents circular strategies across six key sectors, and highlights how Quebec's circularity can climb from 3.5% to 9.8%, further outlining the co-benefits this transformational shift could bring. This first regional Circularity Gap Report shines a light on the power of provinces, positioning Quebec as a key agent for change and promising incubator for circularity.
