Today's linear economy--in which natural resources are extracted from the ground, made into products, used, and thrown away--was successful in delivering economic development during the 20th century. However, global trends indicate that the traditional, linear model's ability to produce economic growth may become less viable, prompting a search for alternative approaches that can work in the long term.
Published by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center (CCC), in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Achieving a Circular Economy: How the Private Sector is Reimagining the Future of Business showcases companies that are contributing business solutions to challenges such as these.

In the report, we share best practices from companies who are leveraging the environmental, economic, and social opportunities that circular economy provides--and how they are doing it profitably.
This report is divided into six categories:

  • Thought Leadership
  • Electronics and Information Technology Services
  • Environmental Services
  • Finance
  • Manufacturing
  • Plastics and Packaging
