The Circular Economy team at The Council aims to promote the effective utilisation of natural resources through a combination of data, policy, and market instruments. Our focus is currently on the circularity of water, clean energy technologies, and refrigerants with ozone depletion and high global warming potential. We are creating evidence around waste generation, assessing waste treatment technologies and domestic capacity, identifying markets for reclaimed materials, and developing financing solutions for a circular economy. We also convene policymakers regularly to sensitise them about the barriers and opportunities for adopting the various circular economy principles across the supply chains. Our direct industry engagement ensures that proposed interventions are practical and scalable.
