Circular Investment: a review of global spending, and barriers to increasing it

Growing the circular economy is an attractive way to create jobs and support livelihoods, whilst reducing our impact on the planet. It has generated much interest as a route to decoupling economic growth and environmental damage. This working paper - compiled by Just Economics - aims to estimate the level and pattern of current investment in the circualar economy relative to the linear economy. Commissioned by Chatham House as background to its research paper “Financing an inclusive circular economy transition”, it provides the full analysis and methodology for that paper but also acts as a standalone report to inform a set of recommendations about ways to increase investment levels - especially private investment - to the circular economy.
