Circular North America

This work stream is focused on building a community of action to accelerate towards a more circular economy across the region, exploring supply chain and trade issues, and enhancing harmonization and synergies from activities across jurisdictions. Launched in Fall 2020, the track builds off a successful workshop event hosted by Environment and Climate Change Canada, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and is focused on:

  • Building a strong and interconnected community of thought leaders and change makers working to accelerate a more circular North America.
  • Examining the distinct policy, jurisdictional, cultural, economic, and industrial characteristics and factors that are shaping circular economies in our region.
  • Identifying the successes and learnings we can leverage and adapt from our partners abroad.
  • Accelerating the North American-made innovation and solutions that will help drive the global circular economy.
