WEF Launches Public-Private Platform on Circular Economy

IISD - The Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy (PACE) aims to enable greater cooperation among public and private-sector organizations to close the production-consumption loop. PACE will contribute to achieving SDG 12 on sustainable consumption and production by developing solutions for e-waste, plastic pollution and other SCP challenges. UN Environment and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation agreed to collaborate in strengthening the scientific basis for policy decisions, including at city level, to decouple economic development from environmental degradation.
