Circularity Gap Report 2022: Unleash The Power Of The Circular Economy
21:00 to 22:00 - January 19, 2022

Join the launch of the Circularity Gap Report 2022 to learn how any business, city or nation can unleash the power of the circular economy.

About this event

Our world is only 8.6% circular. This means that we waste more than 91% of all materials in use, while we continue to extract from the earth. To safeguard the future of our planet and its people, we must do better. And we can: the circular economy offers solutions that can limit global warming, safeguard our finite natural resources and boost equitable societies. In this world where over 91% of all the materials we use are either wasted or lost, we have a huge opportunity to do better.

Join our live online launch

This year, we are celebrating five years of Circle Economy’s Circularity Gap Reports. Join us for the launch of the Circularity Gap Report 2022 with one of the ‘founding fathers’ of the circular economy as we know it, Walter Stahel, the founder of the Circularity Gap Report series, Marc de Wit, and the current lead of the programme at Circle Economy, Matthew Fraser (more speakers to be announced).

The speakers will look back at the evolution of the circular economy over the past ten years. And, based on five years of deep Gap Report analysis, they will demonstrate how we can keep the world on a 1.5-degree pathway and mitigate the worst impacts of climate breakdown with practical solutions.

We will also deep dive into real-world examples of the circular economy in practice, and consider the methods we can use to scale these examples around the world.

Armed with this knowledge, any business, city or nation can unleash the power of the circular economy.



We are honoured to be joined by fantastic speakers and panellists:

  • Walter R. Stahel (‘Founding father’ of the circular economy, Founder & Director at The Product-Life Institute Geneva)
  • Elisa Tonda (Head of the Consumption and Production Unit in the UN Environment’s Economy Division)
  • Anders Wijkman (Chair Climate-KIC, Honorary President of Club of Rome)
  • Marc de Wit (Director Strategic Alliances at Circle Economy & initiator of the Circularity Gap Report)
  • Matthew Fraser (Lead Circularity Gap Reporting Initiative at Circle Economy)
  • Laxmi Adrianna Haigh (Lead of Editorial at Circle Economy)
