A 2020 Report by Ellen MacArthur Foundation
This paper focuses primarily on private sector finance and explores the
potential of the circular economy in terms of creating value for investors, banks, and other financial services firms.
Initially, this paper demonstrates the ways in which the circular economy can help investors achieve their ESG goals while creating opportunities for new and improved forms of economic growth.
The report furthermore highlights how investors, banks, and insurers are already capturing these opportunities, thus highlighting that the market for financing the circular economy is rapidly taking off across asset classes and sectors.
Of additional interest to many readers, the paper provides the financial sector with concrete examples on how to finance the scaling of a circular economy.
At Mana, we recommend this report as a useful resource for understanding investment opportunities in the circular economy.
