Circular economy and the Covid-19 recovery

In the unprecedented response to the Covid-19 pandemic, trillions in economic stimulus have been made available around the world, while the calls for a recovery that is in alignment with other global challenges, have never been louder. Many see a rare opportunity beyond the pandemic, to build a resilient and low carbon economic recovery.
