We bring leaders together from across business, government and civil society to develop a collective circular economy agenda and drive ambitious action.

Who we are

Since 2018, PACE has become the global collaboration platform for key public and private decision makers to share a vision, best practices, and scale the circular economy together. Nearly 100 leaders from governments, companies and civil society, across continents and sectors, have joined PACE’s Leadership Group to help accelerate the transition to a circular economy globally. 


Our vision is a global, circular economic system that enables human and environmental well-being.

Our mission is to catalyze global leadership from business, government, and civil society to accelerate the transition from a linear to a circular economy that will improve human and environmental well-being for current and future generations.



Our goal is to help double global circularity in the next 10 years, working towards climate-neutral and inclusive economies.

  • Address the most challenging barriers to the circular economy with concrete solutions and actions, enabling them to go further and faster together
  • Identify and promote best practices and knowledge based on the best available science to unlock scale
  • Align language, metrics, and guidelines to counter fragmentation
