Circularity Gap Report Sweden

Sweden's emissions reduction goals are the most ambitious worldwide: net-zero by 2045. But the energy transition is only part of the story. Our Circularity Gap Report Sweden finds that Sweden must—and can—do more to become a true climate champion. The key lies in building its circular economy to shrink its large material footprint. At only 3.4% circular, most of the resources Sweden consumes are not cycled back into use—and rates of extraction are astronomical. But by building a circular economy across sectors such as the built environment, agrifood, mobility and more, the country can cut its material footprint by 42.6%.

“Ends” Framework
‘Ends’ frameworks help us envision the dot on the horizon and ensure the end goal we are working towards takes key concepts that we care about into account.
“Means” Framework
‘Means’ frameworks provide us with the tools to translate visions into concrete realities. Where ‘ends’ frameworks put a dot on the horizon, ‘means’ frameworks pave the way.
