How much circular economy is currently reflected in our activities?

The Circularity Gap describes the gap to a full circular economy, where we reuse resources again and again without degrading quality.

Circle Economy’s fifth Circularity Gap Report still shows no progress towards the Circular Economy: our world is only 8.6% circular. Between COP25 in Paris (2015) and COP26 in Glasgow (2021), we have globally taken 70% more raw materials from the earth than can be regenerated. Overall, raw material consumption is continuously increasing every year, of which over 91% is being disposed of.

Expressed as a quantity of emissions, the main polluting sectors are mobility, housing and infrastructure, and food. The report shows solutions with corresponding emission savings potential.
