THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY ACTION AGENDA 

Subtitle

The world needs to pivot away from the linear economic system. PACE's Circular Economy Action Agenda illuminates how we can transition toward circularity.

Why do we need a circular economy?  

Kubota F2400 Wiring Diagram The world needs to move towards a circular economy because use of resources has Servo Motor Circuit Diagram and could double again by 2050 if we continue business as usual. We must urgently work to create a circular economy where waste and pollution are designed out, products and materials are kept in use, and natural systems are regenerated – leading to a more resilient economy and a healthier planet.

The Circular Economy Action Agenda  

Wiring Gfi Outlet The Circular Economy Action Agenda is a rallying call for businesses, governments, researchers, consumers and civil society to work together to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.  

 

Well Pressure Switch Wiring The Action Agenda is made up of five publications: plastics, textiles, electronics, food, and capital equipment. These are crucial areas for the creation of a circular economy, with many lessons that apply to other sectors. More than 200 experts from more than 100 businesses, governments and civil society organizations have contributed to the development of the Action Agenda.

 

Renault Scenic Wiring Diagram There’s no longer any question of whether we need a circular economy – the evidence is clear. The Circular Economy Action Agenda tells us how to make it happen, and how to ensure it has the greatest possible impact on people and planet.  

  

Each publication of the Circular Economy Action Agenda presents:  

  • Objectives – setting out what a circular economy would look like 
  • Impact – assessment of the potential impact on people and the planet if the objectives are achieved 
  • Barriers – analysis of what is impeding the implementation or scaling of circularity  
  • Actions – 10 calls-to-action designed to optimize impact, overcome barriers, and study the unknown – including practical examples of where to start and case studies of what is already working. 

What are the key elements of the Circular Economy Action Agenda?   

Food 

30A 240V Schematic Wiring Diagram We cannot survive without food. But our planet cannot survive our current wasteful, resource intensive and polluting model. Changing how we make and produce food through transition to a circular economy can help us to tackle climate change and feed the global population of tomorrow.

Textiles 

2010 Ford F450 Fuse Box Diagram Fast fashion has huge human and environmental costs. It makes unsustainable demands on the planet while emitting large quantities of chemicals and toxins. At the same time, millions of items go to waste: unsold, unused or discarded. A circular economy for textiles will help reduce and reuse waste, reducing climate impacts and protecting the people who produce and dispose of our textiles.

Plastics 

Another Cfl Bulb Circuit Diagram With Details Plastic waste has become one of the defining issues of our time. The environmental and social consequences are of global concern: plastics in our oceans, greenhouse gas emissions and toxic additives. A move to a circular economy will help drastically reduce our use of plastics and ensure those we do use are managed responsibly.

Electronics 

Basic House Wiring Colors Electronics are the world’s fastest-growing waste stream. New production of vast quantities of smartphones and computers use up precious natural resources and poison our planet. Most are simply discarded and replaced by a newer version. A transition to a circular economy is a major economic opportunity that will protect people and the environment.

Capital Equipment  

Engine Diagram 1985 Ninja 900 Production of capital equipment - the buildings, machines, and infrastructure we use to keep our societies running – uses 7.2 million tons of resources per year. These are products that are designed, built and acquired to last, often staying in use for several decades, and the capital equipment industry can offer important lessons for the transition to a circular economy.
