Circularity Gap Report

Aug. 22, 2022

For 5 years, Circle Economy has published the Circularity Gap Report annually. In it they report on the size of the circular economy in order to get a clear picture of where progress can be made.

The Circularity Gap Report was first presented at Davos in 2018. The report then showed that our global economy is only 9.1% circular, which means there is a large "circularity gap. Unfortunately, this percentage has only decreased from then on.

The study measures the state of the global economy and shows key points where the transition to circularity can be made. It also provides insight into the circularity gap of individual countries and sectors. In doing so, it provides a numbers-based framework to monitor progress.

The circular economy does not arise by itself. CIRCO (a program of TKI-CLICKNL) focuses on getting a new market moving. CIRCO therefore activates - with the support of the government - entrepreneurs and creative professionals to (re)design products, services and business models in order to then do circular business.
