Closed Loop Infrastructure Group

This Action aligns with the following Calls to Action from the Circular Economy Action Agenda 

  • Support Manufacturers to Increase Sourcing of Secondary Components (Capital Equipment, CTA 8)

  • Strategically Plan Sorting and Recycling Facilities, in Compliance with Trade Regulations (Plastics, CTA 7) 



The Closed Loop Infrastructure Group (CLIG) aims to build a circular economy supported by strong infrastructure that ensures all valuable materials – from plastics to paper, glass and aluminium – are recovered after use, kept in circulation and never go to waste. CLIG funds replicable, scalable and sustainable recycling and circular economy infrastructure projects across collection, sortation, processing and new technologies in recycling. Each of the funds in the Infrastructure Group invest alongside one another to bridge existing financing gaps, scale solutions and build on synergies across the funds’ networks to scale circular economy infrastructure across North America. 



The Closed Loop Infrastructure Group undergoes third-party verification of impact processes and performances and continue to support investees in its Closed Loop Beverage Fund and Closed Loop Infrastructure Fund in 2021. The Group also launched the Closed Loop Circular Plastics Fund as an industry-led investment fund that provides catalytic financing to build circular economy infrastructure, upgrade recycling facilities and spur technological innovations to source, process and return post-consumer and post-industrial polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plastic into manufacturing supply chains in the U.S. & Canada for use as feedstock for future products and packaging.
