Global Goal

Join us in the ambition to double global circularity by 2032

We use far more resources than the earth can sustainably supply - 100 billion tons of raw materials annually, of which only 8.6% is cycled back into the economy. 

A circular economy, which designs out waste and pollution, keeps products and materials in use for as long as possible, and regenerates natural systems, is necessary to tackle the root causes of the climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution crises.  

We urgently need to collaborate to deliver action and scale a circular economy. 


That’s why under our new strategy, PACE and its board members call for a global commitment to:

Double global circularity in the next 10 years, working towards climate-neutral and inclusive economies.  

PACE’s Co-Chairs, Stientje van Veldhoven and Frans van Houten, shared with the WEF how we can get there and why this is so critical. 

We are engaging partners to join us in this ambition on the road to the UNFCCC COP27 in November, translating commitments into action, aligning practical actions, and better understanding what we need to measure individually and collectively to achieve our ambition.

Public and private leaders who are a part of PACE’s global platform:

  • 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
  • Reinforce individual efforts to drive commitment to ambitious circular economy goals with other actively engaged, frontrunning leaders
