Roadmap Circular Finance 2030

The circular economy is a means to an end—our end goal being an ecologically safe and socially just space. And the financial sector plays a crucial role in realising the transition to a circular economy. But it's not easy to go circular in a linear world: companies and projects seeking financing still face many obstacles in transitioning to circularity.

By following the actions outlined in this report, the financial sector can become a lever for and driver of the circular transition.

Are you a financial institution representative, a financial sector advisor or a policymaker? Would you like to accelerate your circular transformation?
